Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for January 25, 2016
Panel 1: "Sorry I ditched you at lunch, Nate, but I really needed to be at that study session." "That's okay, Trudy." Panel 2: "After you left, I figured that as long as you were getting work well done, I might as well accomplish something, too." Panel 3: "So you studied?" "No, I started a food fight." Panel 4: "Well, what ELSE was I going to do, just SIT there?"
