    Good catch, Mom! Every time he gets in the car, he ditches it!

    I thought, like Calvin, that the 3rd time is the charm….. Phooey…

    It was a Kodak moment when Watterson first drew it.

    Good chance she will miss those questions. Especially since Calvin will be finding out the answers by then…

    Mom’s got that little grin at the end; she was amused by the attempt and her near-failure.

    The part I love about this one is the fact that for just one millisecond, she was about to tell him to go drive the car.

    Put Calvin on a roller coaster for an entire afternoon and he may not ask that question about the car for quite a long time….

    Here’s an alternative answer to the question about the car: “About a zillion miles an hour”…Calvin’s mind might fog over trying to absorb what that means…

    if he asked how far he could jump off the roof she would said, “Go outside and see”

    …moms with kids like Calvin either quickly learn to " think on their feet"…even while reading…or go totally “NUTS”…

    A kid like Calvin will certainly keep a parent on their toes! And if he’s this way now . . . at the age of 6 . . . imagine what he’s going to be like when he gets older!

    Parents whose kids make it to adulthood have a second layer of consciousness devoted entirely to analyzing Calvin-type strategies. Thanks, mom.
