Haughty spirit before the fall.
BRING IT ON! 2+2=22!
break a leg, Calvin
It’s going to be the “Bats essay” all over again. I just know it.
Two min silence for Hot Dogs pls.
This has to be somebody’s dream sequence.
As the class stares dumbfoundedly, wondering who this alien is who possesses Calvin’s brain.
The bad news is that they just started AP Calculus.
Why is my Spidey-sense tingling all of a sudden?
Is this a Tracer Bullet story?
Fingers crossed for the lad; but, given his track record, I fear for him…
Wait. Wait…..listen for it…..the sound of wailing to come………….
He’s been doing too advanced math but doesn’t know simple math.
What if nobody gives him any pennies?
Shame to deflate him, it’s not often Calvin actually shows an interest in school work.
Come on, Calvin! You got this! Attack it, Buddy!
(Who am I kidding? Epic fail incoming!)
Hearing the “Jaws” theme in the background for some reason!
This strip belongs on Believe It of Not. Personally, I vote “Not”.
I want what he’s having! (Not the quiz, silly!)
That’s the spirit Calvin, a positive attitude is 50% the battle… getting the answers correct however is the other 100%.
I think that the idiot is going to be in for a rude awakening.
Does he ever ’’Impress’’ anyone?
cue the ominous music
Good! Nothing can go wrong now!
Ah yes. The fleeting sense of exultation just before you discover you studied the wrong thing, or the right thing wrong. …sigh
Remember Calvin dad did show you the easy way, remember you do not get change with math quiz.
Self delusion knows no rest.
The great thing about pessimism is that you’re either proven right, or pleasantly surprised.
A cloud of suspense covers over the class room. Will this be Calvin’s shining hour??
“Wait a minute! None of these word problems involves pennies! I’m sunk!”
I always found learning a new skill was easier after I spent a little effort on “pretending” to enjoy it.
I hope that covers what Dad helped him with—(crossed fingers)
No you OMG GO ALL BTS
If there is a 50-50 chance that something can go wrong, then 9 times out of ten it will.
And someone will pop his bubble!
I hope he does well. He could use the math encouragement.
Atta’ boy Calvin, think positive, you can ace it…
e=mcx2-1/4 of the square root plus a smidgen of cinnamon and VOILA!
Calvin is too smart (and way to undisciplined) for his own good. This is an arithmetic test and he will be applying advanced group theory (which describes algebras in general and doesn’t care about whether 1+1 =2 or 273).
