Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for October 14, 1988
Calvin: It's scary being sick...especially at night. What if something is really wrong with me, and I have to go to the hospital?? What if they stick me full of tubes and hoses? What if they have to operate? What if the operation fails? What if this is my...my...last night...alive?? Hobbes: Then I can look forward to having the bed to myself tomorrow. Calvin: Few things are less comforting than a tiger who's up too late.
