Hobbes is not very courageous for a tiger.
It builds character.
Calvin could make a movie about this.
well, Hobbes, how SHOULD it be helping?
Calvin, you’re gonna go flying butt over tea kettle. No need to heighten the suspense, because you will plummet—no suspense at all!
When you get right down to it he’s just a big old pussycat.
I want to stay on life side!!
“The thrill of victory, the agony of defeat” comes to mind.
You got it, Calvin! One wrong turn coming up!
Just ask Sonny Bono.
Oh, for pity’s sake, Hobbes – it’s just some of Calvin’s hype trying to make his life more adventurous than it is. (You ought to know this by now…)
The only people who would do well on Suicide Slope would be someone from the Suicide Squad like Harley Quinn.
One small sleigh ride for a boy ….
When I was a kid we had a hill that emptied into a parking lot, it was a lot of fun then the powers that be decided the houses next to it needed a new sewer, they put it in right at the bottom of the hill creating a bump about 2 feet tall at the base of the hill, oh yeah the carnage was awesome we named it “Murder Hill” But alas someone broke an arm and the folks who owned the parking lot put up a fence but was it fun while it lasted!! LOL
Cautious people might never reach great heights, but they get to survive. Sometimes that is the greater success.
I think we’re approaching another “Here, hold this beer while I..” moment.
Am surprised that Calvin is allowed out after the debacle with ‘Rosalyn’ ! ! ! !
The only broken bone I ever suffered was from going down hill on my son’s GT Racer snow sled.
After the crap he pulled on Roslyn, I thought Calvin would be grounded or something.
I have heard ‘pep talks’ like this one before. It is not very pep-ish and I wish they would stop talking.
When I was a kid there was an alley behind our house which was on a steep hill in the block past our house and then crossed the street directly behind our house. (Sorry, but I had to set the scene) anyway, I talked my younger sister into coming down the hill on my sled and I stood watch in the street that she would cross! You guessed it just as she started down the steep hill a car turned the corner headed in our direction! Like a good brother I first waved to the car to stop and then I stepped in front of the sled and my sister who was hurtling downhill at breakneck speed! The front edge of the sled hit me just above my feet and flipped me all the way over ala Lucy and Charlie Brown! Fortunately the car stopped and, except for some bruising, everyone was OK!
Calvin should get a Darwin Award nomination at least
spelling error….it’s adrenaline
There actually is a hill in Omak, Washington that is signed as Suicide Hill. https://www.all-creatures.org/alert/alert-20090620-2-02.jpg
Ok Hobbs, you know what to do, step off the sled at the last moment and give Calvin a good push.
If Calvin was smart he’d follow Rory’s example and sit behind Hobbes (see today’s The Barn)
Hobbes should shut his eyes and hang on for dear life.
What part of “no” don’t you get?
At least he’s learned some interesting words lately!
