Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for January 17, 1993
Nate: Okay, if I hit that tree with this snowball, it means I'll ace that math test tomorrow! Dang! Well, that was just a warm-up! This throw will determine whether or not I'll ace my math test! Rats! Okay, this time it's for real! If I hit that tree, I'll definitely ace that math test! YES! It's official! I'm going to ace the math test! It's guaranteed! Nothing can get in my way! Psst! Francis! Move your arm!
