Maybe passing out would be a good thing.
Calvin must have crazy lungs.
If you really want Calvin to behave, him passing out would be the best solution.
Let him pass out. Ros will appreciate it.
Bath and Roselyn. Too much for Calvin.
If you want Calvin to behave, give Hobbes to hang on to as a hostage. If he is good, he gets him back. If not, she takes Hobbes home with her. Besides, Hobbes won’t mind, he likes girls.
Rosalyn’s the only baby sitter mom could get? Hmmm, I…wonder…why?.;-D
So many people thinking the same as me? Amazing!
Calvin should consider Karma. If he’s good then there’s no problem with Roslyn. If you lock her outside & talk with her boyfriend on her phone then hell hath no fury like what you are about to receive.
You’re a goner, Cal. No use screaming now!
The stress has unhinged his mind!
Watterson is a master!! He tells so much by saying so little.
He hasn’t taken his bath yet, but he’s clean already. Did he scream himself clean?
I understand he’s upset about this.
Just think how Rosalyn would feel if he passed out. She would bask in the quietness.
Purely, a dog crate would be a good investment here.
That is one of my most favorite Calvin strips.
This event actually happened with one of my sons. My wife and I watched him, sitting there patiently, doing a “hurry up” rolling motion with our fingers. When he finally ran out of breath, we said, “You can breathe in now.”
I think after a while, he forgot what he was crying about. Eventually, he figured out that this was too much work for no result. Then he switched tactics to bargaining. For a while we thought he would grow up to be a lawyer.
No, no….let him pass out. Easier on everyone that way.
Passing out might be an improvement.
Calvin looks like the air raid siren that got stuck in our town and it took hours for authorities to shut it down.
Is this the birth of primal scream therapy?
Sounds like Mom actually tried someone else. Given past history, that would seem to be a waste of time.
Could always tell when my daughter was going to pass out….long scream, increasing to a certain pitch….then silence……and a scramble to shake her out of it…
That’s how I felt about my 2nd grade teacher Miss Strom. Truly an evil witch.
It’s all an act. In his devious little mind he is already planning malicious mischief.
Calvin’s Lex Luthor!
My mind has drawn a blank. What happened last time with Roslyn, even if it’s just roughly where in the archives to find that arc would be appreciated.
I think I’d let him pass out.
That is what Calvin wants.
What do you think Rosalyn’s family is hearing right now?
I wouldn’t ask anyone who doesn’t know my kids to watch them and anyone who does know them won’t watch them. Fortunately, I don’t care about not having a social life because I don’t care much for people. The feeling is probably mutual.
Calvin is taking the news rather well.
No virus in Calvin land?
Maybe best for everyone, even himself, if he passes out for this event.
I used to babysit for a “Calvin” – so “She was the only babysitter I could get” rang true for me – I was the only one who WOULD babysit that kid ;) Paid well too $5.00/hour when the going rate was only 50 cents……
Rosalyn is in her house doing the same thing, regretting the need to earn money…
I’m not sure who I should pity more: Mom, Calvin or Roslyn.
Oh, let him pass out. You’ll get a few minutes of peace.
Awwhh.. the poor child needs parents rather than a babysitter.
Go ahead and pass out on the floor: it will be a new experience!
Took my Granddaughter home from a wildlife sanctuary one day. She was about 3 at the time. She didn’t want to go home, and she screamed all the way back home. Didn’t pause for breath. Not a single real tear. I thought “dang I am impressed.”
Love the effects authors can pull off in this unique media. In this case, writing the “Augh” across all four panels to clearly signify Calvin yelling for the duration of the conversation, lol.
I’m with Calvin on this one…
At least that would make Rosalyn’s job easier?
