    Why was Calvin even roller skating and holding a pitcher of lemonade at the same time in the first place?

    Because they are kids and they are learning, trial and error.

    I was hoping for another ‘booty call’, and we get his mother.

    At least he understood the gravity of the situation.

    I suspect Calvin spent an hour reading about Gravity and the theory of relativity, after making that mess, so he could get out of the ‘sticky’ situation by sounding smart! And he did!

    That was my daughter in a nutshell. Kid got straight A’s. Ask her if she set the table for dinner and she would get a look on her face like she just had two lobotomies.

    Mom’s last line reminds me of a Roadrunner comic that I read in the 1970s. In the comics, the Roadrunner spoke in rhyme as well as saying “Beep! Beep!”

    “No thing I’ll never know about our chum

    How can he be so smart and yet so dumb!"

    Calvin must have been watching a rerun of Carl Sagan’s “COSMOS”

    Don’t blame the kid; he’s a product of his parents upbringing.

    Despite that clear explanation of gravity, Calvin apparently does not know where the mop is kept.

    Calvin has learned the art of framing.

    From the movie Robin Hood: Men in Tights:

    Prince John: [shouts] I knew it! I knew it would be bad news. Wait, I have an idea. Maybe if you tell me the bad news in a good way, it wouldn’t sound so bad.

    Sheriff of Rottingham: [thinking] The bad news in a good way. Yes, I can do that. The bad news in a good way. Well, here it goes.


    Sheriff of Rottingham: W-wait till you hear this! I just saw Robin of Locksley, he’s back from the crusades.


    Sheriff of Rottingham: You know, he just beat the crap out of me and my men.


    Sheriff of Rottingham: He hates you and he loves your brother, Richard!


    Sheriff of Rottingham: And…


    Sheriff of Rottingham: … he wants to see you hanged!


    Sheriff of Rottingham: We, we’re in a lot of trouble!

    [laughs and snorts loudly]

    Prince John: [furious] What, are you crazy? Why are you laughing? This is terrible news!

    When I was 8 I broke my arm. Roller skating while reading a comic book. Interrupted my Mom’s dinner party. Sigh.

    They learn it from their parents. Only their parent make bigger messes.

    Because they’ve learned from their parents, who are dumber still.

    Being clumsy isn’t “dumb”, but trying to weasel out by using the space/time continum excuse just may be.

    Mom, Mom, Mom – grab Calvin by the ear and show him how to use the mop to clean up the mess he has made. Then show him how to make lemonade to replace what he has spilled. Finally, tell him the next time he wants to roller skate, do it outside.
