Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for January 17, 2015
Nate: If Artur weren't around, I'd be the one going out with Jenny! Francis: I doubt it. Francis: She wasn't exactly hot for you before Artur moved here. Nate: But she was about to be Francis! Nate: I was this close to making my move! I was getting ready to zero in! Francis: ... The key word being "zero." Nate: Then... Bam! He shows up with all his manners and stuff!
