Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for March 06, 1991
MY BEST FRIEND FRANCIS School stinks, but fortunately my best friend Francis is in all my classes, which makes it less of a drag. We always make sure we are sitting next to each other in class so then we can mess around and pass notes and stuff. Nate: Field goal! Francis: Dang! Also I was originally assigned to share a locker with Sally Wilson but I booted her out so my best friend Francis could move in. Nate: Did you notice I used the words "best friend" three times? Francis: For the last time, I am NOT going to let you copy my math homework!
