    They understand you quite well, sadly for them.

    What’s not to understand about a kid who constantly lives in imagination land?

    I never saw the point to those sorts of prizes. Now, the ones that gave you a full-sized chocolate bar certainly got my attention. (Yeah, it really dates me. :P)

    I am pretty sure that most moms and dads understand most kids a LOT better than the kids believe. But maybe not Calvin’s parents…

    Of course, Calvin – parents do not ‘get it’ at all. They barely understand each other.

    As a kid I never understood why mom changed our cereal so often. Now I get it; it was to avoid having enough box tops to send away for anything. By the time I was in fifth grade, she only offered us toast and chocolate or plain milk, and I had stopped eating breakfast at all. We were served lunch at 11 in my school, and I hated cold milk first thing in the morning.

    What would Calvin do if all of a sudden he had a new brother or (gulp) a sister.

    What’s a decoder ring? Some kind of encrypted walkie talkie?

    There used to be a cereal that you could take off the box top and send it in, and they would send you a baseball. Don’t remember which one it was.

    Sort of like encrypting the Microsoft licensing agreement. There may be something worth knowing, but who cares. Just do your thing.

    Why is the ring in the cereal? Why not in the box?

    Good Grief, I still have decoder badges. Secret messages always were "drink more Ovaltine. Best was the Atom Bomb Rings [go into a dark closet & see the sparkling lights] & Tom Mix Whistling Ring.

    I noticed both Calvin and Hobbes have evil grins. I’m pretty sure that only Calvin did as the comic matured.

    With multiple kid families, Cracker Jacks were better, each kid could have their own box/prize.

    When I was a kid I had a wristwatch with glow-in-the-dark numerals. I was probably irradiating myself, but nobody knew any better way back then. They’d barely discovered water at the time.
