    Ask to see the notary stamp where you signed agreeing to this Calvin. Your footprint on the birth certificate isn’t valid evidence.

    Can you spell PROBABLY? Text-speak is neither English nor universally understood. You should be learning and making use of the fundamentals of grammar, composition, and punctuation. I know- I’m preaching. The intent is to instill in you a love and respect for the language that will serve you well later in life. It’s difficult to be taken seriously if you don’t speak rationally and coherently.

    If paragraph two specifies the bedtime, then what does paragraphs 1, 3 – 32 specify?

    Rule 1: Parents make all the rules and do not have to consult you in advance.

    2: Bedtime is 7:30 pm.3: If conflict over rule 2, please see rule 1.Etc….

    The prom date is a long way off, but leave it to Hobbes to think of something to do with smooching.

    The Snoopster I heard you talk about your accident with you bike. I thought much older than you and with two kids your age, my son left his boots and I did not notice them, I went to answer the phone and I stepped on the boot and twisted my ankle. This was long before you. Your break will heal more faster than a sprang will with no effects, just have a lot of patients. This happened 25-years-ago. I still have issues with my foot.

    At the rate Calvin is progressing, he’ll have plenty of time to re-negotiate his contract before he’s eligible to attend a prom. Fourth grade might be the toughest 3 years of his life.

    It’s odd to me that Calvin would care about a contract . . . he seems more like the type to believe that contacts are only for the rest of us peons. Any how, Calvin’s prom date might actually be relieved that he has a 7:30p curfew . .

    I agree with that too. I don’t text. Texters make up these abbreviations and expect others to know what they mean. I, too, can easily forgive typographical, spelling and punctuation errors, though.

    Considering how Calvin is doing in school, he’ll be older than 18 by prom time.

    @ The Snoopster (injured) – When and/or how has the word “probably” become reduced to “pry”? I’d seen “prolly” but I guess even that bastardization of the word was too cumbersome.

    I can see how you may have taken blueskies comment in the wrong way. No one is yelling at you, or trying to be rude. I believe the commenter was trying to point out that most of the kids that come here to play are late 30’s and up. I know that text language is natural to you, but I personally thought you had miss spelled TRY. All ages are welcome to come and play here. We just like to be able to understand each other. The majority here do not understand text language.I hope your leg gets better soon. :-)

    When my son was very little, I used to tell him things, like bedtime, were in the mommy rule book. When he was about 3 he wanted to see the book. I told him that he couldn’t. When he asked why, I told him that was the first rule in the book.

    Word shortcuts pre-date text speak by decades, probably centuries. Words like “natch” instead of naturally, (I told him to get lost, natch. And he took it very well, in the circs.) or “circs” instead of circumstances. “U” replaced “you” in lots of circles long before phones were even invented, nevermind cellphones. I think it was always considered a bit of fun or a bit slangish, though. Not the proper thing to do in polite circles, but part of a youth culture.

    Discounting the adult-sized vocabulary and other precocious traits, Calvin is overall a typical six-year-old. Hopefully by senior year he will have matured enough to be able to secure a date for the prom. Or, if he’s more mature by then than anyone ever expected, perhaps he will decide not to go at all.

    You are aware, are you not, that there are children as young as 7 (and maybe even younger) checking this page daily? Please, keep your comments family-friendly, in the spirit of Calvin & Hobbes. That’s why most of us joined in the first place.

    That requires a Statement of Emancipation. Calvin has to prove he is capable (financially and emotionally) of caring for himself. Undoubtedly, Hobbes will be able to provide guidance, but, Calvin on his own … I don’t think so.

    Thanks, CrazyIrishOperaGirl. Here is the strip that you mentioned. It was one year after the beginning of Peanuts, and six months after Schroeder first appeared.Click here: Peanuts (November 20, 1951)

    Funny thing to notice among comments: Here, Snoopster is being dinged for text-language; over on Non Sequitur he is being dinged for very mild profanity…bet you feel all beat up today. Don’t mind us old fuddy-duddies, we’re just old and cranky. ;-)
