Calvin & Hobbes Continues to Charm

Patch came down for homework time toting his big stuffed dog. I didn’t think much of it. He hasn’t been prone to carrying around big stuffed toys, but it was well within normal parameters. Then he said,
“I wish I had a stuffed tiger this size.”
Then I realized that I’d just called him away from reading our volume of the Complete Calvin & Hobbes Collection. Patch clearly was picturing himself as Calvin. Some things endure from generation to generation.

  1. Your story reminds me of this gem that I saw posted on Facebook a while back. I actually got choked up when I read it, because the sentiment is so true. Someday, when I have kids of my own, I have several things I’d like to pass on to them. 🙂
