    Maybe you should cover him with the pillow, Hobbes…

    Good Morning Marg. Not a bad idea at all! I didn’t think he’d forget about it after 6 weeks.

    Give Calvin a break. I remember being that antsy, especially on Christmas eve. I simply could not get to sleep for the anticipation and fear of the following morning. Will i get the thing(s) I wanted most? What if I was not good enough that year and didn’t get anything? I would work myself up into a state and not get to sleep until after midnight (bedtime was 8:00 or 8:30). By 5:00 I was awake and had to endure the endless waiting until I simply could not hold back and got my parents up around 6:00.

    Yes Calvin, I do understand!

    Hobbs can’t push Calvin out of the bed. The monsters under the bed would eat him, get a sugar rush, and then barf him up. How would Hobbs explain monster barf to Calvin’s mom?

    You all know, I am sure, that by the time it comes he will play with it for maybe a whole 2 minutes, something else will catch his eye and it will be forgotten forever. Until his mom put’s it in a yard sale that is…

    Or, it will be a big disappointment to him when it comes…the propellers won’t spin; it won’t fit him maybe. I had things like that happen to me when I was a kid. Look forward to something so much, then..fizzzzzzzzzzz :-(

    Calvin thats what happens with too much caffeen and sugar. I’m not to much that way but I do have nights I can’t sleep. I try to avoid chocolate :(

    Question once spammers get spammed or flagged aren’t they suppose to go away? Yesterday I flagged spammers but it stayed. And ones who talked about it I at the time didn’t see the spammers.

    Exceptions don’t prove the rule in the modern sense. When the phrase was coined, “prove” meant “test” not “verify as true”. If you think about it, exceptions do test the rule.

    Had a beanie that I sewed the prizes from Cracker Jacks collected over many Saturday matinees. These included minature trains and planes. Wore it for about a year. Took the fan off right away though. Long, long ago and far, far away on a planet called the fifties.

    Woohoo, forgot all about that little springtime enterprise. Oh how I loved looking the catalogue and picking out my reward! I remember selling enough packets (at 10 cents ea.) to earn myself the neatest things….like a chemistry set one year….then a wristwatch….then a bow and arrows…..

    And I was no more patient than Calvin when it came to the eternity it took for my prize to arrive in the mail.

    The rule is tested and found not to be absolute in that there is at least one exception. I used ‘so-called’ exception because the word ‘proves’ usually is considered to mean ‘shows convincing evidence’. Thanks for your clarification. I think we are (more-or-less) on the same page.
