I think I need to change the name of my tumblr and follow more gen-x kids who never completely outgrew 1986.

You know who you are.

Ever Wished That Calvin and Hobbes Creator Bill Watterson Would Return to the Comics Page? Well, He Just Did.

Calvin & Hobbes is like my “mom’s guide to understanding why all the DVDs-I-mean-planets are loose on the floor and the markers are being blasted to them across the room by the four-year-old.”

Watterson FTW.

To the punk kids at the truck stop north of Kings Dominion

I hope you made it to Cleveland safely. I really wish I could have helped you with more than all the quarters I had in my change thing—I should have offered to buy you gas. I saw one of you looking at a map inside and the look that the guy at the counter made when you put the map back. I’ve been a punk kid on a bat-shit crazy road trip before; I know how that can be. 

That also gives me pause to think about all the times I haven’t come back to the person asking for help. I apparently have no reservations about giving a handout when I identify with the person asking. But I could do more to help any of them, really. I could.
