I too sleep with the baseball bat beside my bed to kill the monster lurking down it.
I wonder I still may not be old enough to not start doing this poll manipulation thing with my dad either.
I do not want my wife to have such a kid in the house. I want to be that kid rather.
We might consider a tiger instead.

Calvin is named for a sixteenth-century theologian who believed in predestination. Most people assume that Calvin is based on a son of mine, or based on detailed memories of my own childhood.
