Mr. Sandman and the Tooth Fairy got into a bar fight over the Yankees-Astros game.
now that dream would suck !
This is going to be bad day. DREAM GOES POOF. It’s going to be worse.
Nice twist ending!
Don’t you just hate it when you can’t fall asleep until about an hour before you’re supposed to get up?
Shovel in an extra helping of those Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs. You’re going to need them.
The Sugar Bombs will redeem the day yet.
The problem with grownups, Calvin, is that they want you to go to sleep when you’re not tired and want you to get up when you’re completely zonked.;-D
Next time make sure Hobbes is in bed with you and you can rub is warm tummy to help you sleep.
Me, most nights.
Bad night, it’ll become a bed day!!
Any day that starts with being wakened is gonna be worse than one where you just wake up refreshed and then start the day. Though I’d rather have someone wake me like that than have the Alarm Clock Demon yell at me.
I used to dream I was sleeping in strange places, like the open market, in a church (boy those benches are hard, but a dozen dream-blankets helped) or on the floor in a lecture room. When I would tell my friend, the reply would be, “Gosh, how tired ARE you?”
I feel for you, kid.
Calvin, ( the strip) lay off the Sugar Bombs.
And Calvin is too young for coffee.
Calvin – Hobbes = dreamsomnia
I’ve had several of those, Calvin. Stay positive! You’ll get through it!
It’s a five o’clock world Calvin
I read somewhere that the sandman was originally a character that was used to scare children into going to sleep. They were told that, if they didn’t close their eyes, the Sandman would come and put sand in their eyes.
I hate those dreams were you can’t sleep all night and the alarm off. However, the absolute worse are the one were you dream you went to work, or in Calvin’s case he spent all day at school.
Time to cue “Enter Sandman” by Metallica
Take my hand
We’re off to Never—, Neverland
Welcome to most of my Mondays.
I don’t have that problem. I normally get up at 5 AM, work out, go for a 4-mile walk, read news and comics on the computer then shave, shower and get to work. By 10 PM I can hardly stay awake. I sit on the bed and the time between when I fall asleep and my head hits the pillow is a couple of seconds.
What I do suffer from is that if I am up to 1 AM, I still get up at 5 AM! Also, sometimes, I will get up about 3 AM with an exceptionally creative (and rarely worrying) thought. If I don’t get up and deal with it, I won’t get back to sleep.
Hey kid, you’re gonna hate your sixties.
It rained and Mr. Sandman was afraid to go out in it.
Been there, done that…way too many times
I so very much sympathize on this one. I dreamed last night I was working for hours on end. How is that even allowed?
At least it wasn’t the one where I’m back in high school and can’t remember my locker combination when the head cheerleader walks up and says, “No pants, huh?”
I’ve had dreams about having insomnia.
So, Calvin is a late-middle-age woman now?
Twice I have awakened and a moment later awakened out of that dream, too. It is terribly unsettling.
I’ve actually had dreams like this.
My sympathy. Used to work various shifts as a nurse, on rare occasions worked all three in one week. Really messes up the sleep.
I feel ya, Cal.
When you suffer from allergies, sometimes this can happen for real.Often when I’m still not asleep yet and it’s 1:30 AM, this strip comes into my mind.
I’d love to hear a kid use the word ‘waylaid’ nowadays. ;)
Of course Calvin can’t sleep. Hobbes doesn’t appear to be in bed with him.
We call those days Mondays…
There was one night I couldn’t get to sleep, and it was past 1:30. Then the upstairs neighbor’s water pipe broke, and I never got to sleep at all.
A six year old would sleep like a baby. All that exhaustion from nonstop tactics and play would take its toll at night. I wonder why we adults dont get that quality of sleep.
Ive had nights like that, it seems like I just roll over and it’s morning
I still love the name of the cereal: Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs – I want some!
Poor Calvin. I know just how he feels.
No it can’t be insomnia Doctor because I can sleep when it’s time to get up.
Would someone tell me why they named him “Calvin”? There is nothing endearing in that name.
R.I.P. Calvin. He did not get any sleep
I’ve had too many similar experiences. :P
