She should proud to have a 6 year old who can do political satire.
“Because I said so!” And?
The ultimate law.“I’m your mother”
“Because I said so.” Really?
What else has Calvin got to do? Mom knows better than to set him doing housework—which is how little girls’ Saturdays got ruined, back in the day. “Play? What do you mean, play? You have Work to do, young lady!”
Only on Saturday? In my day, my sister and I did daily housework. My mother NEVER dusted or vacuumed once we could do it. :P
Don’t you just hate that “because I said so” excuse? One would think they would find a more creative answer to excuse a punishment.
For a kid who can’t add 2+5, Calvin sure does know a lot of other stuff
Do you remember how old you are Calvin? 5 or 6? Much to young to hang out at a drugstore eating candy and reading comic books.
Mom’s fingers look weird in the last panel
Calvin has been spared from a terrible fate.Worst. Reference. Ever.
Even better, the old SNL “Sprockets” dance…
The first day on my vacation, what I did on my summer vacation, the first day on my vacation, I woke up.Then, I went downtown to a look for a job.Then I hung out in front of the drugstore.The second day on my summer vacation, I woke up, then I went downtown to look for a job.Then I hung out in front of the drugstore.The third day on my summer vacation, I woke up…
I see NOTHING! I know NOTHING!
My mom NEVER used the “because I said so” line. She always gave me a reason or explanation for things she said and that was way more effective. It meant that I wouldn’t just do something she said not to if I thought she wouldn’t find out and that kept me out of trouble.
Sir, yes, sir! …er, Ma’am!
Either your mom was extraordinarily patient or you were more compliant than my sons or me when I was their age. I always give my sons a reason why I don’t want them to do things but they do not yet have the cognitive ability to understand some of the explanations. Those are usually the type of actions that put them in immediate danger. There are also times when they can’t see past what they think is fun to understand the amount of clean up work that will result. I have modified it to “If you don’t stop, I will stop you.” which is easier for them to understand.
“Drugstore” sounds weird. We say “Pharmacy” or “Chemist”
But to each their own.
What just happened here? Duplicates of duplicates (comments, that is)
How many drug stores still sold comic books in the 80s?
@mattro53:No, I don’t. I doubt very much I’m ready for that.
Aren’t we all.
GREAT !! This one IS Calvin !!!
his moms fingers are stuck together again
