Calvin galore!

Indulged in a beautiful sin over the weekend. Bought myself the complete Calvin & Hobbes collection. Cost me a bomb- 6.5 K, but it's worth every penny of it. A lot of people in office came up to me yesterday(I'd ordered the books on the net and recd them in office) and politely enquired if I had gone off my rocker. Really didn't know how to respond. What, and how, do I explain to people what books mean to me? Will they understand the importance of Calvin in my life? Will they appreciate that when the chips are down and the burden is heavy, it's Calvin & Hobbes who embrace me and welcome me to their magical world. A world where imagination runs wild, where dreams come true, where a six year old lives life the way he wants to(well almost, at least in his own world)!!!

Nope, I don't think they would've understood. So I just smiled and didn't say anything.

6.5 k!!! U must be really out of ur mind Bakhshi!! I can buy 6 new pairs of shoes or three new pair of jeans or 600 pairs of earrings!!

Kya karte ho yaar!!
Anyway....enjoy ur Calvin & Hobes!
And the shoes, jeans-pant, and earrings will take you to a magical world, away from all the tensions and travails of our world? I have my doubts! :-)
My favorite C&H is the one where Calvin walks up to his mom grinning and she looks at him like he's crazy, and then he turns towards "us" and says "What's the point of wearing your favorite rocket ship underpants if nobody asks to see 'em?"
