Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for December 28, 1986
Calvin: Toboggans give better rides than runner sleds. Hobbes: Why is that? Calvin: There's no way to steer. Calvin: On these cloudy winter days, sometimes I like to lie back on my sled and look at the sky. Calvin: It's just grey and silent. No birds singing or bugs buzzing. Everything is muffled by the snow. Calvin: Imagine what it would be like without any people or houses around. It would be perfectly still. Calvin: Pretty neat, huh? Hobbes: Yes, very peaceful. Hobbes: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaa Calvin: I hate all that silence.
