Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for August 29, 2014
Nate: My dad wants me to set goals for myself in school. Chad: My Gram's the same way. She wants me to be a go-getter! Chad: On the first day of school, she always says: "Chad, try not to slip through the cracks"! Nate: What does "Slip through the cracks" mean? Chad: It's when the teachers don't notice you. Nate: Sounds like paradise. Chad: Oh, it IS! Don't tell my Gram, but I LOOK for the cracks!
