    When I retired, I enjoyed waking up early just for the fun of not going to work. That only lasted for 3 days, now I sleep until 10:00.

    It’s not getting up early that I hate, it’s getting ready to leave the house early that’s a pain.

    I love the fact that now I don’t have to get up. So all appointments are at 2PM

    You’d think he’d want to sleep in, since he gets up early during the week. Huh.

    That is exactly how it works. My brother had to be dragged from bed on weekdays. On Saturday he was up at 6, watching the old Pink Panther toons (first run, in those days).

    I had to be dragged from bed every day. Still do.

    Didn’t Calvin say,“Weekends don’t count unless you spend them doing something completely pointless.”?Argh! I can’t find the strip.

    At first Hobbes couldn’t see (panel 2) why Calvin wanted to get up so early.

    I may not get up as early when I don’t have to go to work, but I won’t waste my daylight hours sleeping either. I’d be inclined to get up just around sunrise.

    I am retired and still get up before dawn to get my day started. But I go to bed early, so it all evens out.

    I’ve often done that… Woke up early thinking it was a school day. Imagine my happiness when I suddenly realised it was a weekend!

    I like the way Calvin ‘flies’ out of bed in the last panel.

    Once my mother let me sleep til 1PM, I still remember that ONE time! If she was up at 6:30AM, so was the rest of the house. I remember being amazed when I got married (before kids) that I could go to bed and get up when I wanted!

    Me to, Working nights your entire adult life will do that to you. I think that going to bed at 7:00 am is better then getting up at 7:00 am

    Only days I get to sleep in are Saturday and Sunday. The rest of the week, I help getting our son, and my wife off to work by 8. THEN I can try and go back to sleep..generally doesn’t work, so I’m up regardless.
