    @LeadingEdge: I’ve never known Calvin’s mum to have a job. He must’ve run a long way seeing that he goes to school and back by school bus.

    Miss Wormwood should have remembered what happened two years ago when Calvin asked to go get a drink of water.Wait a minute……. two years ago? How can she remember two years ago when time doesn’t pass in Calvin and Hobbes and the same year keeps repeating over and over? That explains it.Poor Miss Wormwood is doomed to repeat the same year with Calvin over and over in an endless cycle, never getting to promote her problem students to the next grade, and forever counting the same number of years to retirement. Every September she returns to school, and there is Calvin, sitting in her class once again. It’s like being stuck in a movie called “Ground Hog Year.”Anyway, two years ago when Calvin asked to go get a drink of water, a stupendous thing happened:Click here (or stretch image): Calvin and Hobbes (February 25, 1993)Click here: Calvin and Hobbes (February 26, 1993)Now, back to today’s strip. In FoxTrot, Jason’s sister Paige had a similar experience. Well……….. not all that similar……..Click here: FoxTrot (March 21, 2003)

    CPS didn’t get the parents for child neglect? He walked home alone and unsupervised by any adult…

    Home faucet water tastes better than disgusting school water.

    Mom is home at her career choice of being a mom and a homemaker. While some moms do have a second career outside the home, they are rarely given enough credit for the role of homemaker..Ducking now…

    Technically, Calvin’s doing everything right. He asked for permission and received it. Told to hurry up, he ran. He didn’t specify WHICH water he wanted a drink of, and Miss Wormwood didn’t specify which water he could drink. A good lawyer will get him acquitted.

    Calvin replies to Susie, “And if I fall into the drink, I will say your name before I sink”.

    When I was at school, We used to get milk every day.

    I drink a lot of water because I enjoy it so much. Mainly because it has no calories in it.

    Calvin’s family must have moved to North Carolina or West Virginia.

    Not the first time Calvin asked to be excused from class and then just went straight home.

    Why not just bring a water bottle to school?

    OMG! A six-year-old disappearing from his school today would have the FBI, every local law enforcement agency for miles, every NSA drone with a camera and every Eagle Scout they could muster tracking him down!

    I lived a half block from school. Wish I would have thought of that. Water fountain was warm.
