I got the letter I wrote to myself! Hobbes: What did you write? Calvin: "Dear Calvin, Hi! I'm writing this on Monday. What day is it now? How are things going? Your pal, Calvin." Calvin (to Hobbes): My past self is corresponding with my future self. Hobbes: Too bad you can't write back. April 20: Calvin: I got another letter from my past self. Hobbes: What does it say? Calvin: "Dear future Calvin, I wrote this several days before you will receive it. You've done things I haven't done. You've seen things I haven't seen. You know things I don't know. You lucky dog! Your pal, Calvin." Calvin: *Sniff* I feel so sorry for myself two days ago. Hobbes (rolling his eyes): Poor him. He wasn't you.
