The Slice

This date in Slice history (1996)

Gone but not forgotten: We heard about a second-grader named Tom who told his teacher that he wanted to turn into a dinosaur and stomp all over the school.

This alarmed the teacher. She informed Tom's mother that the boy needed counseling. But when his mom talked to him, Tom didn't understand the fuss. “I was just being like 'Calvin & Hobbes,'” he said.
