Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for December 31, 1989
Hobbes: Are your parents going out for New Year's Eve? Calvin: Are you kidding? My parents idea of a wild night is to mix a scoop of real coffee in with the decaf. Hobbes: Are you making any resolutions for the New Year? Calvin: Resolutions? Me? Just what are you implying? That I need to change?? Well, Buddy, as far as I'm concerned, I'm perfect the way I am! For your information, I'm staying like this, and everyone else can just get used to it! If people don't like me the way I am, well, tough beans! It's a free country! I don't need anyone's permission to be the way I want! This is how I am - take it or leave it! By golly, life's too darn short to waste time trying to please every meddlesome moron who's got an idea how I ought to be! I don't need advice! Everyone can just stay out of my face! I...Hobbes? Hmph! He should resolve to be more attentive when someone is speaking.
