someone else's idea

Perhaps today will be the multi post day, the kind of day where I rake ideas into a pile, stealing bits here and there from bloggers I read making myself post fodder out of it all. It's so much easier than thinking original thinks, and as lazy is sort of a life goal of mine, I feel I'm pretty good at it.

Cocking a Snook Too has a lovely story about her discovery of Calvin and Hobbes. If you aren't already one of her readers, then I have nothing but pity for the time you waste reading lesser blogs. If you are a reader, then you are already aware of her lovely style.

For the great unwashed masses I give you a favorite Calvin and Hobbes strip. Calvin and Hobbes is the creation of cartoonist Bill Watterson and is one of the most enjoyable comics I've ever read.

I apologize for the small size of this comic, but you didn't buy the bifocals for nothing, so lean in close and back up quick after reading it so you don't laugh spittle onto your screen.

I seem to know a lot of home/unschooled kids whose passion for reading didn't flower until they discovered Calvin & Hobbes... my older son among them. Sadly, my younger son has discovered that it's easier to get his big brother to read C&H to him than it is to learn to read it himself.

RedMolly, I'm sure it won't be long before younger brother wants to read for himself, plus there's that special something seeing brothers reading anything together.
