stuck here

I'm re-reading my Calvin and Hobbes books. Need some joy in my life right now. 

From the Days Are Just Packed collection, a couple of pages in, I found a funny bit, in one of the "intro" panels, the quick joke in the second box. It starts with Calvin and his trusty friend and tiger extraordinaire standing outside and looking up at the night sky. Calvin, pointing, says, "There's Venus. There's Mars. And there's Jupiter." Then Calvin looks down, with a scowl. He says, "And I'm stuck here." Watterson's emphasis.

If I could, I would.
