Calvin should have prepackaged rations stashed away for occasions like these.
Mother’s intuition, I’m guessing?
Calvin, you just might as well Yell that the car is in the ditch…Mom is going to figure out you’re in deep (insert appropriate word here) really quickly… ;)
He is realy sorry, she will have a shock, but she will help!!
Methinks the laddie doth protest too much. But OTOH, if I were Mom, I’d be suspicious ‘cos he’s making his own sandwiches, even if he said nary a word….
10 minutes are enough to pack sandwiches to survive in Yukon.
his life is in danger
Of the flight or fight response, his reaction is……make like a shepherd and get the flock out of here!
Way to act natural like nothing happened.
Don’t know where Calvin is starting from. But Siberia is nice this time of year.
Yep. He’s got me fooled.
Kids are so cute when they’re trying to (over)act subtle. Even some adults aren’t good at it.
How much longer can he cut the act?
Calvin’s mouth doesn’t open any wider than in panel 4.
Maybe Amnesty International can help?
Too bad Calvin is about 12 years shy of being able to enlist in the French Foreign Leigion.
Car? What car?
He is dead meat. Calvin, just give it up and surrender now.
Why, has she been drinking? (With a nod to our British Cousins)
“Nothing at all, Mum”
He doesn’t need to use words to tell Mum that he’s freaked out about something he’s done.
His face says it all.
where is a transmogrifier when you need it
Technically, Calvin wasn’t actually IN the car; so, Mom can’t accuse him of automobile theft…
He could always blame it on Susie.
You might as well tell her now. Putting this off is pure torture.She will find out once she goes into the garage.
Poor Calvin! That face in the last panel is priceless. I still say to play it innocent Calvin, she’ll just think she forgot to put it in park!!!
I just watched a 1971 cartoon version of Christmas Carol the other day, and Calvin in the last panel looks like the ghost of Jacob Marley after he removed his chin strap.
Wow, calvin looks pretty scary in that last panel.
