    It’s always the technicalities that get you.

    The Babysitter Flag! Deus ex machina! That’s what Calvinball is: one convenient divine rescue after another. Calvin could have come up with a topper, but he blew it. Good thing, too. Rosalyn had achieved expert status.

    I just realized that this story arc is the last one with Rosalyn and that means the strip is nearing its end point again. I hope/presume GoComics will restart at the beginning like they did ten years ago.

    Here it comes! Once in bed, Calvin will lay into Hobbes for being a traitor!

    If Roslyn forgets to take off her mask when Calvin’s parents return, I wonder what they will think.

    Could Rosalyn and Calvin have found common ground and mutual respect through Calvinball? Is this the start of a new stage in their relationship? Stay tuned…

    I was wondering how long it would take her to get her fill of Calvinball. She lasted longer than I thought she would.

    I always thought that rule #1 in CalvinBall is that Calvin always wins ?

    Did Calvin just obey Rosalyn? Geez, I must be dreaming… ;)

    He might have lost, but I bet he’ll look back on it as the best game of Calvinball ever.

    I hope Calvin doesn’t take the water balloon to bed with him, I hate to think what the outcome might be if Hobbes’ claws pop out…

    If they make the kid go bed that early when it’s still daylight, then they shouldn’t complain or be surprised that he’s up by 6 am and bounding down the stairs to watch Saturday morning cartoons and eat chocolate frosted sugar bombs.

    It is nice to know that Rosalyn can still think like a kid. That would come in handy as a parent.

    Well, Ros finally figured out that you have to sneak up on him in his own game, rather than confronting him head-on. And she probably had fun with him for the first time.

    It’s a win-win. Calvin had fun and didn’t get in trouble.

    First Hobbs was a guard, then he was a prisoner. It must have been the striped suit that gave him away.

    Yep, Ros and Calvin were both smiling. Maybe she can cut her rate now. ;)

    fast forward 20 years: Calvin is a 26-year-old hunk and Roz is, say, a 36-year-old divorcee. Perhaps something will ignite between them, all due to this one Calvinball match.

    so, Roslyn got Calvin to do his homework, got him exhausted playing Calvinball, and now he’s able to go to bed without excess struggle, just minor griping (as is normal for most kids).See what mutual respect will get ya?however, I am deeply wounded to know that Calvin and Hobbes is on the last bit of it’s run. ya, me too, hoping that they start over from the beginning again.

    also, anybody heard from our fellow commenter (and Calvin and Hobbes insider) Hobbes?

    Actually, Calvin, Rosalyn DID say that you could stay up an extra half-hour tonight; IF you behaved yourself and did your homework. Well, guess what? Your extra time is up; and it is indeed time to do what the babysitter says: go inside, and straight to bed!

    It’s good to see Roslyn get the upper hand for once.
