    They grow so fast. It’s unfair. Some years when I was working, I didn’t even see summer. Summer is an eternity for Calvin. One of the most shocking photos I’ve seen is that of my mom pregnant with me on a beach. My mortality became so real. Calvin and Hobbes which was first published yesterday in 1985, is immortal. I got about 20 years and then I’m gone.

    Calvin has a thing about manicotti. I remember alien scum, (his parents) after he had been captured, threatening it with him. He escaped, with the alien scum saying he would have cold manicotti for breakfast.

    I’m like that on a plane. Four hours to escape winter. It takes forever. I’d like to take a valium or two, and just not be there. Last year it took about 20 hours to reach my destination, waking up, getting to the airport, 2 hours, waiting to board the plane, 3 hours, getting on the plane, waiting 2 hours on the tarmac as they offloaded excess fuel, and changed the flight crew, finally getting into the air for four hours, waiting at the next airport for hours and hours, because there had been a medical emergency, and my next flight had been cancelled. I almost had to spend the night in the airport. Another hour on the second flight, then an hour clearing customs. Longest day in memory, and I was like Calvin the whole time.

    It’s amazing how quickly Calvin’s prophesies came true. I do all of my shopping, except for groceries, on line, all of my banking,, online. Retired, I literally don’t have to leave the house. I can take courses, on line, get another degree, online, even volunteer, online, talk with friends, online, find a partner, online. There is very little I can’t do online. When I was recovering from surgery I even ordered groceries online. I can research symptoms and know what I need online. If I could write my own prescriptions, I wouldn’t even need to see a doctor. I rent out my place when I’m gone, online. If I so chose, I wouldn’t need to interact in person with people for weeks at a time. If I had grandkids, I’d just Skype them. If I need exercise I could have a treadmill, elliptical machine, stationary bike, right here, and buy it online.

    Now that Hobbes mentions it, tackling someone when you want to stop their advance, does seem very low brow, and very military. A mine field would work very well too, and be more permanent.

    I’m not very tolerant of oblique aspersions either, and it’s true people change whether they want to or not.

    @Richard H H
    ditto that, still trying to figure out what happened

    Actually that is only slightly improbable. My psychologist was a waitress doing her PhD. It was really good money and she enjoyed it. The income differential between the two careers when she graduated wasn’t that much. Cocktail waitresses can make a fortune in tips, if they’re young, pretty, and good at what they do. Calvin’s question is really quite fundamental. Who is writing my script? and as Hobbes adds, why aren’t there more gorgeous babes in it? Very fundamental questions about life.

    I actually preferred “Married with Children” to “Seinfeld” or “Friends”, much more realistic, but Woody Allen never worked a day in his life really, in any of his films. People don’t like to be reminded of working when they’re not at work. Work isn’t very entertaining at all.

    Around here, the Canada Geese don’t bother flying south. They stay all winter, by the river. They eat a lot of grass. It’s the law here you can’t build on the flood plain, so every river is a huge park, lots of grass, lazy geese. The cold doesn’t seem to bother them at all. Makes me wonder why they ever flied south.
