(So long Pop! I’m off to check my tiger trap! I rigged a tuna fish sandwich yesterday, so I’m sure to have a tiger by now! They like tuna fish, huh? Tigers will do anything for a tuna fish sandwich. We’re kind of stupid that way. Munch Munch)
(So Dad, what do I do when I catch a tiger? Bring it home and stuff it Calvin! Can’t you see I’m busy? Sheesh. No, really, I couldn’t eat another bite!)
(What’s all this noise? You’re supposed to be asleep! It was Hobbes, Dad! He was jumping on the bed! Honest! "Hobbes" was not jumping on the bed! Now go to sleep! You were too jumping on the bed! Well, you were the one playing the cymbals!!)
(Show and tell is over, Calvin. Please put your "tiger" in your locker. In my locker?! He’ll suffocate! Well, at least put him under your chair. Whey! That was a close one! I’ll say! Sever plus three. Seventy-three.)
(Good night, Calvin. ‘night Dad! Hey! Aren’t you going to say good night to Hobbes?! Good night, Hobbes. That’s it?! No story? No smooch?? Go to sleep, you sissy.)
(What’s this? Taste it. You’ll love it. You know you’ll hate something when they won’t tell you what it is.)
(Outrage! Why should I go to bed? I’m not tired! It’s only 7:30! This is tyranny! I’m ZZZZ Good night, Calvin. Will you check for monsters under the bed? No monsters. You’re safe. What about the dresser? Calvin, I’m sure there are no monsters in your dresser. Go to sleep. Great. I’ll bet that’s where they all are. They’ll come out and kill us as soon as we fall asleep. So who’s going to fall asleep? Well, we’ll just have to get the monsters first. You irritate them with this horn, and I’ll nail ’em with my dart gun when they come out. Get ready! I hear one coming! What’s all the noise?! AAIEEE!! A monster in the hallway!! Dear will you come up here a minute? I think I wounded him. Give me the bat and I’ll finish him off!)
Loving my family, loving my friends, loving my life, and having hopes of a wonderful future...
