    And I bet Dad has innovative ideas about you and some other things as well.

    Bedtime is not the best time for discussing your allowance, Calvin. Where is your agent Hobbes at?

    G’Morning, Mike, Marg & Grog!

    I’d still love to hear a 6-year-old talk that way.

    Polls of “household” 6-year-olds should be taken seriously. That’s a ‘leading’ question, Dad! Are you evading the issue? With Calvin, you never know what the issue might be. It could be worms in Dad’s creel, but should we make ‘allowance’ for him?

    If we’re going in order than the kids got, “big ones”, for even bringing anything like that up after what he just did to the family car!

    Calvin is so precocious! My favorite line is “If we can be serious for a moment….” Sounds like a lawyer.

    Somehow, i don’t think we’re going in order. Even Calvin wouldn’t be that insensitive and ungrateful.

    He so much reminds me of a little fellow my wife “nannies”, who’s five, and does indeed have a vocabulary not unlike Calvin’s. It’s a marvel listening to him, sometimes, though once in a while he gets the meanings wrong, a little, but he tries … . remarkable kid.

    Calvin, don’t push it, a snowball would have a better chance of survival in that other place.

    And a good morning to you, Sylvannis.

    Calvin, I don’t think you should talk about an allowance, after almost ruining your dads car….

    One innovative idea for his allowance is to take out of it the tow bill for when Calvin pushed the car into the ditch. Oh how soon he forgets.

    Has Calvin been reading about the French Revolution?

    This approach so reminds me of “… il nous faut de l’audace, encore de l’audace, et toujours de l’audac …” [“… we need audacity, still more audacity, and audacity forever …”]

    Calvin is the very definition of selfish audacity [aka a normal 6 year old boy].

    After the car in the ditch stunt, I think doing a poll right now would be a little pre-mature, Calivn!

    TN-REDD – yes, I’ve seen Calvin do left-handed things at other times in this strip. Maybe that means Bill Watterson is a leftie too?

    PS So am I — “left-handed people are in their right mind”

    I agree with others here: after the Car-in-the-ditch incident last week, and the still unexplained worm fiasco, Calvin had better not push the allowance allotment.

    TN-REDD & gvbarb, what about us ambis? I, personally speaking, have a perfectly unbalanced mind.

    Calvin is an incredibly precocious 6 year old. I didn’t learn about extortion until I was 8.

    Allowance? At six? The only money I made at that age came from the tooth fairy!

    Clearly Calvin’s father has not gone out to the garage, and Calvin’s mother is keeping “mum” about the whole thing. In the meantime, the lawyer/bureaucrat in Calvin is getting a little excercise…I mean, they do call it “practice” don’t they?

    I once saw a greeting card which said everybody was left-handed until they committed their first sin. As a lefty, I wanted to get it for my left-handed girlfriend, but I was afraid my right-handed wife would find out.

    Some time ago I thought Calvin might be a fellow leftie. I checked my C&H library and found he favours the left but is in fact ambisinistrous.

    The truth would hurt here, but Dad never even listens to Calvin, so in on ear and out with a threat. This could have been a learning moment, but…
