Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for September 20, 2015
Look what I found in the attic, Gram! Goodness! Those are your grandfather's old boxing gloves! Gramps was a BOXER? Indeed I was, m'boy! I fought as a lightweight for a year or two after I finished high school! I'll show you some of my moves, Nate! Help me put those things on! Now, Vern... Relax, Marge. I'm just going to do some shadowboxing! Lace 'em up, champ! These laces are all dry and brittle. Oh, they're fine! Tug harder! *snap!* If anyone counts to ten, I'm not going to be happy. Once a lightweight, always a lightweight!
