And now we realize why Calvin didn’t want to play with her at the start.
Well played, Susie
Calvin would prefer to play doctor and the nurse.
Of course, Susie would rather have a tiger for a husband than Calvin.
Girls never want to play anything interesting.
When is playing together not playing together? When Susie Derkins explains how you’re gonna play house with her … or rather how you’re gonna play house but not with her.
Hope Calvin learned the lesson here.
You GO girl!
It’s funny how having blown off guys year after year, women get to a point in the late 30’s where it’s ’I’m now ready to have a baby’ only to find no one is really interested in them any more.
The men who could, hooked up with someone younger, when they were younger; the ones left are the ones that were blown off and not interested in the sucker punch to come, or lack the social skills to have gotten married earlier themselves.
FWIW, I married at 32…and I know several women who I was interested in, in my 20’s, who are still single at 50.
When I first went to where there were girls they wanted to play a game that can’t be described here, I was ten and so were they.
Well this girl is not worth it. At first when she is rejected as a friend she sulks for being rejected. But then the first thing she does when the boys feel sorry and allow her to play is she insults them for 10 seconds and then leaves! Who wants to hang around you guys!
This is about as close as Watterson allowed Calvin and Susie’s friendship to develop. Perhaps they were friendliest in the baseball story arc which was reprinted last year. Many pieces of fanfiction including “Hobbes and Bacon” assume that Calvin and Susie will marry when they grow up which seems likely as they are the nearest each other has to a human friend. I like to think that Hobbes will later be sharing a bed with Calvin and Susie.
So much for Hobbes’ wise counsel, eh Calvin? :D
A slight feminist thing here. Too bad she had to be so insulting in panel 3.
At least she did not resort to physical violence here.
Did Susie get her idea from “Mr. Mom” (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0085970/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0)?
there should have been a spin-off with these two married in the future
At least Calvin can now identify his parents, Susie and Hobbes. His real parents are so dumb they don’t even know their own names!
…and we see where the war starts. Maybe fighting is better than boredom, but I don’t think so.
I would not play with her. Wonder what kind of home life she has.
Suzi, just get your own GD imaginary tiger. grin
I take back my comment from yesterday, even though it applies more today, than yesterday.
Calvin: “You can play with us if you want-”
Susie: “THANKS FOR THE CONTROL, SUCKER”
Forget about Suzie and do something interesting, like make gunpowder
“Unemployed housekeeping husband…”
GASP Quickly followed by laughter. So that’s how the battle of the sexes begins.
This will not last long.
As long as she leaves, then we can do what we want
Don’t wait up for her. She’ll be drinking martinis with her colleagues after work. (wink wink)
Is Watterson trying to make a statement about working moms?
hey guys! Don’t talk to your father that way, that’s a goodie.
Have a Wonderful Wednesday!
Susie’s act of revenge was brilliant. Calvin deserved it. Hobbs is my dream guy.
My brother and I grew up next door to four sisters. I played house with them once. They insisted I be the dog. That lasted about two minutes and this “dog” flew the coop.
Neglected in childhood makes for a damaged adulthood.
Calling Mrs. Doubtfire!
Susie, with that attitude you loose to play with the handsome brat and a charming tiger.
First time I saw the animated Hobbes in the same frame with a person other than Calvin.
How come tigers can never hold down a job?
Now that’s typecasting.
