    Not a good father: having a small child, at certain times, means interacting with him as if the parent was his age .

    Dad missed a tender, bonding moment with Calvin.

    Actually, the inhabitants of a region in India called the Sunderland do wear those masks in order to confuse (yeah, right!!) tigers that stalk them from behind. Doesn’t work all the time though!!

    Remember when it was aspirin and not acetaminophen (or paracetamol if you speak the queen’s English)?

    The second stage of his plan is to scatter aspirin around the house to repel tigers.

    Awww, Dad. You could humor Calvin and wear it for an hour or so. Don’t you want to get your Dad-rating UP? I think you were low in the polls last we heard.

    For dad, ‘Aspirin’ is code for birth control pills.

    If Calvin’s dad would just humor his son, he might be able to create an actual relationship and help Calvin mature. Just sayin’.

    Calvin just needs to meet the little aboriginal kid from the God’s Must be Crazy (II?) – they can discuss the relative merits of wearing a mask on the back of your head compared to making yourself look bigger holding something on the top of your head.

    What do Calvin’s parents tell the 2020 Census? That would be interesting to see a strip showing them struggling to remember their own names!

    I mentioned this a couple of weeks ago, but it bears repeating: there are times when Calvin’s triple-Gary-Busey-bat-guano-crazy, but there are also times when his parents could stand to unclench a little.

    I think it’s real thoughtful of Calvin to make his folks masks to protect them from tiger attacks. He’s showing how much he cares for them. It’s sweet.
