Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for May 14, 2000
WHAM! EUSTIS: Spitsy! Easy! Down, boy! Sorry about that, Nate. NATE: **SPLUT!** Spitsy, you idiot! What is with you? EUSTIS: What's with him? He missed you, of course! Yu took care of him all last week! The two of you bonded! He now thinks of you not just as the kid next door but more like a parent! HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!
