Calvin Inspired Peanut Butter Dilemma Redux

A while back, I had a peanut butter dilemma. I couldn’t deal with it. I tried and tried to preserve the purity of the top of my peanut butter, and it sunk farther away each time I scooped some out. I didn’t know how to deal with it. So I tried again. And again and each time the same thing happened. Then I thought to myself, maybe I wasn’t thinking big enough. Maybe I needed a bigger jar.

Calvin Inspired Peanut Butter Dilemma

I’m proud to say that I’ve read every single Calvin and Hobbes strip I can get my hands on. I think the comic has wisdom to it beyond all of our years. We can learn something from each one of the strips, even if it’s simply that we need to laugh at life a little more. However, today I present you with this strip: It’s seems silly, but this is something I try to live by. I’m not the only one either. I take Calvin’s words Continue reading →
