    Or maybe she’s just not interested in numerology.

    Good theory and we’ve seen plenty of evidence that Petey’s imagination is up to the task (witness his out-of-body imaginings). And this strip in particular seems to be saying that the Ernesto we’re seeing now isn’t real; ie, that he is able to read Petey’s mind since of course that is where he is currently residing.

    I agree with Sisyphos except that even if Petey were to state that Ernesto is imaginary i wouldn’t necessarily buy it since he might just be unwilling to accept him as anything other than a figment of his imagination.

    In terms of plausibility though, in a way Ernesto is no less plausible than Dill and (especially) his brothers. If we only saw Dill peeking through mail slots and talking about his brothers with their trebuchets, we might be wondering if he was Alice’s imaginary friend. But on the other hand you would think that someone of Ernesto’s eccentricity and outgoing nature, not to mention his apparent involvement in groups like FAA, would be someone well known (at least by report) by both kids and parents alike. That no one except Petey seems to have a clue who he is makes his actual existence seem less likely. Though this is probably overthinking things a mite bit…

    I would imagine that if Ernesto is imaginary, then Pete would simply imagine himself giving over the money. Therefore an observer would only see a boy standing on a sidewalk seemingly lost in reverie.

    That was pretty mean. Couldn’t he at least have helped pick up some of the papers instead of walking away whistling?

    Did daddy bring it or did he buy it?

    But doesn’t that apply to most things Snoopy does/will go on to do? And not just laughing, but being able to make anything at all from a drawing (which to me looks like a koala bear btw) is a big hint that Snoopy is going to grow up to be anything other than just an ordinary everyday type of beagle.

    I look at the strip this way: that the point is not about whether Calvin’s mom is a good mom or not, but all that was simply to set up the sentiment expressed in the last panel. My guess is that Watterson thinks of Calvin’s parents as good parents and wants them to be seen as such but that sometimes, for either humor or other purposes, he has them saying or doing things that a good parent wouldn’t normally say or do.

    I wonder if he flew over the cuckoo’s nest…
