    It really couldn’t be avoided, once the law of gravity kicked in.

    In the mind of a precocious 6 year-old boy, it’s unavoidable.

    Yup. Once an idea forms, it is unavoidable.

    March is generally the dullest month.

    No more snow to play in, but no springtime foliage whose beauty one can admire.

    So, for Calvin, there’s nothing left but—mud!!

    A memory: My best friend when I was about 10 or 11 was the girl who lived next door, Taffy. She had freckles, and hated them. I told her that I had read somewhere that a mud pac on the face would take care of freckles. At the end of our driveway was a hole that was PERFECT for a mud puddle. I took her to it & we both slathered our faces with the mud. Neither of our mothers were very happy…and it did nothing to her freckles.

    I am sure, ’Calvin’s’ mom believes that…….just like she believes that ‘Hobbes’ is real and IS the cause of all of ’Calvin’s’ problems ! ! ! !

    Okay. Speaking of unavoidable, go back out there and get me the hose and stand on the sidewalk.

    Two of my favorite pictures of my kids are when they played in a mud puddle in the back yard. I hosed them off after taking the pictures. My wife wasn’t too happy, but I thought it was awesome.

    Of course it couldn’t be avoided — he was surrendering to the randomness of the universe (cf. today’s Agnes strip).

    The occasional mud is required by we adults to detox. No wonder childhood is the best phase of life.
