Topics: War of 1812
Nate: A frozen waffle has ruined my life. Teddy’s frozen waffle if you really want to know. This whole disaster is totally his fault. It started yesterday in social studies. That’s when Mrs. Godfrey, A.K.A Jabba the Gut, assigned a research paper. Guess who has to write about the war of 1812? Worst. Topic. Ever.
Mrs. Godfrey: Try APPLYING yourself for a change Nate! Remember, this is the last project before REPORT CARDS come out!
Introduction: Big Nate in the Zone by Lincoln Peirce
Nate: That’s when Teddy came to the rescue…. Or so I thought
Teddy: My dad’s a history buff! He’s got tons of books about all kinds of wars.
Nate: Sounded like a plan. After school, we ALL walked over to Teddy’s. Me… Francis.. Dee Dee… And Chad. And it went

It’s sort of a funny story. See I was *KOFF!*… I was over at Teddy’s house, and
Mrs. Godfrey: Nate STOP! I don’t want to hear it. Your funny stories ‘are usually total FICTION
Nate: Before I can answer, Teddy’s beside me.
Teddy’s: But it’s TRUE! He WAS at my house! And he did an outline. But he left it on my kitchen table! And then this morning, instead of cereal, I decided to have a frozen waffle for breakfast. And when…
Nate: HA! Hear THAT, lady? Teddy’s backing me up! What do you say NOW?
Mrs. Godfrey: perhaps you MISSED what I told your FRIEND here! I... don’t...want … to … HEAR IT!
Nate: If you’re keeping score, that’s Godfrey one, truth zero. I guess when you’re a teacher, you don’t sweat the small stuff. Like THE FACTS.
Mrs. Godfrey: hand in an outline by the end of the day, Nate, and you could still earn HALF CREDIT!
Gina: That sounds about right half credit for a half-wit!
Nate: Ugh. Here’s ANOTHER reason my life’s a total bitefast lately. Gina’s been even more obnoxious than usual. See that smile on her face? She LOVERS to see me get in trouble. It’s like Christmas for her. And right now, every day’s a holiday. Stuff a sock in it needle nose!
Gina: That’s not even ORIGINAL you used the exact same insult on me

Just the kiddo I’m looking for. I just added some fantastic books to our graphic novels collection! They’re right up your alley!
Nate: uh… thanks, but I’ll have to look at them later I’ve got to do some social studies first do you have any stuff I could look at above the War of 1812 (as if I really care).
The Librarian: I just might let me see what I can find
Nate: maybe she’s checking the “boring books that nobody wants to read” section. She’s back with a book the size of a stack of lunch trays. I can see the headlines now: BOY CRUSHED BY GIANT BOOK. I don’t know about you, but I try to avoid reading stuff that weights more than I do. It has all the info I need, thought. It only takes me twenty minutes to rewrite my outline. Then on Monday morning DISASTER time for Social Studies
Mrs. Godfrey: Hand in your reports, people!
Nate: B-but… you said they were due WEDESDAY
Mrs. Godfrey: No, I said REPORT CARDS come out on WEDESDAY! Your 1812 paper is due RIGHT NOW!
Nate: I…I haven’t finished it.
Mrs. Godfrey: What?
Nate: she gave me 24 hours to finish I was up to 3:00 A.M and I didn’t have time to correct my mistakes.
Mrs. Godfrey: The Wab of 1812 waf ab imprnttnt turmnming pkkt ijnn ngiusstsry?
