On reality, Calvin and Hobbes, and the wisdom of an eight-year-old

We've been inhaling Calvin and Hobbes around here lately.



A few days ago, I made a confession:
Every time Hobbes is depicted as a lifeless stuffed animal, it makes me really, really sad.

My eight-year-old was baffled.  "Why?" he wanted to know.

"Because," I tried to explain, "he's not real, and Calvin is really just completely alone."




{sigh}




Then:

"Mom?"

"Yes?"

"You do know that Calvin's not real either, right?  They're just comics!"

  1. I have most of the Calvin and Hobbes books and just recently unearthed them and gave them to my 6-year-old. And now, she's obsessed. I can't think of a better comic book character to love than Calvin.
