    Really admire Calvin’s time management skills! Would put a seasoned professional to shame! :)

    Hobbes’ sarcasm and expression in the last panel is priceless.

    Hobbes has become a champion eye-roller. He gets lots of practice just hanging out with Calvin.

    Take time to smell the roses?

    More like Take time to let your allergies spiral out of control. Obviously a conspiracy by Big Pharm.

    Why is it everytime I try to explain that someone is wasting their time trying to smell tulips, they say everything I speak about is sexual or asexual?

    Calvin is taking the expression literally, as most young children would. Ironically, he is actually very good at stopping and smelling the roses, in the metaphorical sense, by frequently getting lost in his imagination.

    Bees have a great occupation, because they get to stop and smell the roses while they are at work. For those of us who aren’t as fortunate with our jobs, today’s strip is a great reminder for other times.

    Incidentally, research into the honey bee genome has found that honey bees have a much better sense of smell than fruit flies or mosquitoes, but a much worse sense of taste. It’s always good to have a few of these facts at your fingertips, so that you can impress people when you meet them at social gatherings. (Sample icebreaker: “So, I recently learned about some surprising findings from a comparative genome study researching olfactory receptors in flying insects……..)

    The real Hobbes is much wiser, and modest as well.
