Strip by: Conor

{Calvin walks up to a flower with a watering can}
Calvin: So you want some water, huh? Well, I've got a big can of it here.
Calvin: It's up to me to decide if you get water or not! I control your fate! Your very lives are in my hands!
Calvin: Without me you're as good as dead! Without me, you don't...
{beat, as Calvin looks taken aback}

The author writes:

Vaguely inspired by the ongoing shifts to weather where I live, namely regular summer droughts in what is supposed to be a temperate rainforest. Now the plants really do depend on Calvin's behaviour!

Original Calvin and Hobbes strip: 1988-07-30.
