the days are just packed
I decided my reading repertoire needed a dose of the classics today.
So I took out my stack of Calvin and Hobbes books.
Do you think that Hobbes really did come alive for Calvin and his parents just didn't know it - kind of like how no one knew Samantha on Bewitched was a witch - or did Calvin just have a great imagination?
Remember that one strip where Calvin and Hobbes had a magic carpet and they flew past the dad's office? That got me thinking that maybe Hobbes really was alive but Calvin's parents just didn't have the magical child-like capacity to see it.
Or maybe Calvin was schizophrenic and Hobbes was just a part of his personality.
Or perhaps Calvin was so incredibly bright for a six year old (check out his vocabulary) that he had to manifest his intelligence and creativity in the form of Hobbes because he wasn't being challenged enough in the first grade.
Or perhaps his parents spent so little quality time with him that he cooked up this invisble friend to make up for the lack of attention he was getting.
Or perhaps I think too much.
