    Or space… or superheroes… or bugs… well sometimes bugs but he doesn’t pay attention because school is so boring most of the time.

    This suddenly reminded me of the poem, “Superman”, by John Updike. I have not thought of that in over 30 years.

    This is a father that just doesn’t get it. (I assume Bill Watterson did get it, though. How else could C&H have gone out on top?) School isn’t just learning, it’s OTHER PEOPLE. Learning is great. Dealing with grouchy teachers and bullies isn’t.

    “It’s only work when someone makes you do it.” Calvin doesn’t mind learning for fun.
