Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for July 29, 1990
Dad: Another day, another dollar...another irreplaceable chunk out of a finite and rapidly passing lifetime. What a beautful summer day...and I've got to spend it in an office. Brother. It seems like I'm always rushing off and never taking the time to enjoy days like this. I'd sure like to have a quiet day around the house. No traffic, no schedule, no phone calls..Boy, that would be great. I could spend some time with Calvin, read a book, go on a bike ride...maybe I should take the day off. The world wouldn't end if I didn't go into the office today. Days like this don't come often and life is short. Calvin: Hi, Dad. Bye, Dad. Dad: Aughh Mom: You get back here and pick every one of those dead bugs out of my shampoo!! I mean now!
