Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for January 03, 2001
"Nate, it's me Derek from chess camp last summer, remember?" "Yeah, sure. Hi Derek, what's up?" "What's up? We're first round opponents, that's what's up." "Can you believe we're playing each otehr. What a coincidence." "Remember what a great time we had at chess camp? What pals we were. Remember how inseperable we were?" "Friend of yours?" "As a barnacle is to a rock." "Remember singing chess songs around the campfire."
