    Her face doesn’t in panel three indicates that she didn’t plan it.. even though she did !

    maybe she didn’t think he would do it so loudly… or maybe she was referring to something else

    @explanation of the prior comments

    if calvin read i first he probably wouldnt have and if he squealed first the message wouldve coincidentally been known to him. either way the message will be viewed by the readers. the outcome that susie was surprised at was the latter.

    susies thoughts- susie wanted calvin to read it and not squeal because she knows last thing calvin wants to do is give her what she wants, she did not expect calvin to squeal prior to reading the note.

    this is not a fallacy. HAHA its so FUNNY!:D i like it when logic tickles my brain(s).

    @mrleaffan- she is surprised it worked. @tjloch- she didnt think he would do it at all after reading it @shadeslayer- she did plan him reading it and not squealing.

    are we reading the same comic people?o.0

    Oh yeah, one last thing. Calvin did not read the note! If you go back through panel by panel, the conclusion is unmistakable.

    not really “squealing” more “screaming”

    @masterturtle, maybe this is the logical paradox of the “Unexpected gift”

    Didn’t now what to do, so he squealed just like the rest of ’em.

    That sure backfired on Calvin.

    He isn’t usually. Only with people he doesn’t like, which is most people.

    I’m not sure why Susie looks surprised in panel 3, considering she obviously counted on this

    I love Calvin and Susies face in the 3rd panel. Just hilarious.
