Let Mom open it. She is immune to girl stuff.
It’s from Susie. LOL
Ok Exactly WHO are you? WHERE are you From?? and WHEN does the rest of the Invasion Fleet arrive?! WHERE and WHY are irrelevant in this Case because you are Obviously a Pod-Person and you Must. Be. STOPPED! JK :-)
Eeeeewwwww….it’s probably got cootie dust on it!
You… you what?!?
In my family were more boys than girls, I got used to them and I wanted boyfriends more than girlfriends!
Darn it Hobbes has that look,you know hes not going to be surprised with whats in that letter.
It might be sealed with muchas smooches! Get the hazmat suit!
I think Miss Wormwood finally lost her mind and is plotting her revenge on Calvin!!!.Or maybe it’s MOM!!!
I think Hobbes sent it, just to take the Michael.
No, it’s a peer pressure thing. One-on-one, boys and girls tend to get along well and accommodate each other. It’s only within the group mentality that they learn they’re not supposed to like each other, and “go with the flow” in order to achieve acceptance within their group. It’s an attitude that tends to change dramatically with the onset of puberty, and could be an inborn defense mechanism against premature experimentation. (I liked girls too. Still do,)
I think calvin secretly sent it to himself.
who is will surprise him ?
Maybe it’s from a girl at the IRS?
I never knew a boy that acts like ‘Calvin’. We all got along in my school although maybe we weren’t the ‘norm’.
Why aren’t all the guys in my high school like you?
Me too! Once I wrote a diary and I wrote something not so good about my mother. I blocked it. One day I came home from school and she had opened it, don’t ask me, what she did!!!
…as a committed tomboy (no, not that kind of committed) (yet) I always hung around with the guys, and was pretty much treated as one – i was the only girl invited to one of the guys birthday parties (we played road hockey)…i do remember one of the nun’s coming out at recess, grabbing me by the arm, dragging me across the playground and depositing me with the girls who were SKIPPING ROPE (the horror!) – as soon as she left I was back playing football…apparently, i didn’t have cooties…
I treat people of the opposite gender like people too, so I don’t think it’s strange. : )
Puh-lease, like any respectable girl would send a letter to the likes of him.
“The Letter” – The Boxtops
I suspect Calvin sent it to himself and conveniently “forgot” about it.
Ah – that explains it. I was never all that concerned about peer pressure, and reacted to it somewhat like cornstarch & water…
Don’t set him off, Hobbes!
Girls are kinda like people.
Does Calvin know Lio or Danae? They would be the prime suspects.
I don’t think they do screen…
i remember when this arc first ran, i know who sent the letter but i tain’t telling!!
a SKULL on the letter!If Moe could write….
cooties are much worse than anthrax. No cure, just a lifetime of coots.
@ Night-Gaunt49 – I’m with you. I never went through the “don’t like girls” phase either. I’ve been absolutely fascinated with the opposite sex since I first discovered the difference. The peer pressure thing is interesting, I’ve always been something of loner so perhaps I wasn’t affected by that.
UH-OH, Calvin!!!!! Cootie Alert!!! Cootie Alert!!!Run for your life before they get all over you and you’re contaminated forever!!!!!!!!!! ;-)
I love that, while Calvin is horrified by the thought, Hobbes is excited. Smoochies!
