Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for March 16, 1987
Calvin: This is where Dad buried the little raccoon. I didnt' even know he existed a few days ago and now he's gone forever. It's like I found him for no reason. I had to say good-bye as soon as I said hello. Still...in a sad, awful, terrible way, I'm happy I met him. *sniff* What a stupid world.
