Why rush it?
in the end, he makes the roadrunner out of cotton balls… to make the bird’s clouds of dust as it just ran past the scene
Don’t forget the coyote and the anvil.
I doubt everything Calvin has said is true.
To quote my favourite author “I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.”
You don’t have to be a psychic to see that last line coming.
At least Calvin is being honest — presumably.
Well, at least he was honest?
Reminds me of the kid who was trying to finish her school project on the school bus.
Better late than never…..
I’m surprised Calvin’s going to all that trouble. For a desert scene all he needs is sand.
Or quite started either…
Procrastination is genius in disguise.
… Or quite started for that matter.
Reminds me of my daughter. Can’t count how many projects, reports et al that were done at the breakfast table the day they were due
Every class has the one!
Contact Peter Otterloop, Jr. But don’t expect a reply.
Never do today what you can put off till tomorrow.
Yup. Standard crisis management. Wait until the last minute and then go for a C. I remember those days with chagrin. However, it does teach us a few lessons in time management and prioritizing. Even if it is at the last minute.
I made a desert scene diorama with a cactus in junior high. I bought an actual small cactus, lopped the bottom off it and pushed a big nail through it to hold it to the shoebox. The teacher hung them all up on the wall, and some months later the cactus grew flowers, even with its roots gone and a nail shoved up its middle.
Needs to go ask Petey from Cul De Sac for some pointers.
I bet teachers learn a lot about the families by the brand names on the shoe boxen.
I still think Calvin’s parents needed to monitor his homework better.
THAT… is my son.
THAT was me on occasion.
gotta love him!
“I’ll also replace Obamacare with something much better! It’ll be a cinch!”
Do we have any sand?
“Wait a minute. Is this going to have a coyote in it too?”
I fondly remember putting off a mathematics assignment: Create a work of art on the subject of mathematics. Oh, the angst! Oh well, it is not due tomorrow! Then one day it WAS due tomorrow. I had a piece of poster board, and scrawled some equations in various places on the sheet, drew several polygons of different shapes between the equations, melted some zinc and poured it over a piece of asbestos and attached the resulting mess between the polygons, ….. etc. The next morning I surreptitiously dropped the concoction on the teacher’s desk and slunk to my seat.
I got an A+
Making dioramas was always fun for me in elementary school. My Lego pieces were always put to work.
In eighth grade I didn’t wait until the due date. It was usually the night before for me.
We were studying the California Missions and had to make a mission. I remember glueing kidney beans on the roof as “ tiles”. Mom was helping me, and I made the mistake of suggesting she finish it while I go outside and play. That idea did NOT go over well.
Great art takes time…
No Wiley Coyote?
He works best under pressure.
Toss some sand in the box with some trash on top and it will look just like Arizona.
And he’ll need a one ton weight labelled “Acme.”
Whatever else he may be, Calvin isn’t a desert-er! :D
while I did ok in school, I never did a homework assignment that I couldn’t complete at school. my lunches and study hall were to finish the work that my teachers assign. Never flunked a class (came close).
Or, just order an Acme Diorama Kit.
In the school system that I went to, if you did not turn an assignment in on time, you got an F. Get enough F’s and Calvin would find himself repeating Ms. Wormwood’s class the next year.
This was around the time when teachers started cutting some slack on due dates, instead of just giving you an automatic F.
Except few, most of the children believe in doing assignments at the last minute.
