    Calvin’s mom needs a suit like that a lot worse than Calvin does. But since she is Calvin’s mom, she can never even begin to do enough to prepare for the unexpected.

    Perhaps she should also include a shield, or just go with the full suit of armor, maybe even including the horse. And Calvin’s mom and dad both need some sort of outfit to protect them from legal action – you know, a law suit.


    Since one can never fully prepare for the unexpected, success in life is really more about how well we are able to deal with the unexpected when it happens. We can try to anticipate various possible scenarios, but the best preparation is really to prepare ourselves mentally to be able to tolerate the unexpected and sometimes even to embrace change. Most major events will not follow our predicted scenarios, and we tend to expend too much energy worrying about things that will never actually happen.

    Following Calvin and Hobbes day-by-day and reading the ever-changing postings on this site can be a little daily lesson in dealing with the unexpected, since each day we never know exactly what to expect, and what direction the topics of discussion will take. Even though we are reading 20-year-old reruns, the unexpected discussion each day adds a dimension of freshness to the experience.


    Please note: Beginning this week and throughout the season of Lent, I will be on sabbatical from this site, focusing on education, contemplation, renewal, and home maintenance problems.

    Stupendous Man needs a helmet? What is he going up against, Doomsday? Or just the Baby Sitter Fiend?

    Yes, indeed. Calvin and Danae should definitely meet, much to the chagrin of both. Maybe Bill and Wiley could come to terms. Wait. If these are 20 year-old reruns, I suppose my suggestion is out of the question. Too bad, the results would have been interesting.

    Hobbes, are we to understand this strip will not be posted during Lent?
