Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for May 25, 1988
Calvin: I didn't mean to break your binoculars, Dad. It was an accident. I'm really sorry. I felt like I was going to barf all afternoon. Dad: Well, I'm sorry I yelled at you like I did. I shouldn't have been so angry. Afterall, it was just a pair of binoculars. In the big scheme of things, that's really not so bad. Calvin: (sniff) really? Dad: Sure...In another ten years, you'll probably be wrecking my car.
