And I bet Dad has innovative ideas about you and some other things as well.
Innovative ideas about allowance! Great!
Good morning everybody! Calvin, you’re pushing it.
Bedtime is not the best time for discussing your allowance, Calvin. Where is your agent Hobbes at?
G’Morning, Mike, Marg & Grog!
what, no good morning for me? puts nose up in air. I’m leaving!
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?
That’s are Calvin. :-)
Love the pencil behind Calvin’s ear…
Good morning everybody!
You said it Tineli…
Dad you should be serious about the allowance… Calvin might keep live worms in your…
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.
One never knows about that little guy.
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.
Ahh! I remember how that dime/week could disappear with the crack of an antique vase Speaking of crack, the car?
No worries about the car…out of “fright,” out of mind…
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.
Who were surveyed? Let me guess: Calvin & Hobbes?
What Calvin really wants is some of his dad’s time and play time.
Household 6 - year - olds, makes that a survey of one.
Me, being a south paw, couldn’t help but to notice where Calvin’s pencil is.. Does that make him a lefty???
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!
Great way to follow up after putting the car into the ditch!!
But your pun IS frightful, and that’s scary!
You realize that this is a ‘car’toon, so ditch the puns! :o)
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”
**Good morning Marg!
Good morning Fran and Kizzzy!
Good Morning L’Wolf!
Good Morning Grog!**
“If we can be serious for a moment…” :-D
gvbarb You are so right . Right -handed people use the left side of the brain and the opposite is true for lefties. Therefore we truley are in our right minds !!!!!
Great information but I dont its going to help you at the moment.
Dads heard some of this before from Mom I bet.
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!
Good afternoon, EVERYONE.
I was wondering, too, about the order of the strips,
Good comments, EVERYONE.
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?
TN-REDD & gvbarb, everyone is born right handed. it is just us competent people who can overcome that obstacle
Sinister vs dexterous. Which do you choose?
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.
My dad seemed to come up short in that area, too.
Good evening, Marg, Mike & ♠Lonewolf♠
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…
