I don’t know if I ever explicitly said that everyone on Rick Mittleif’s team at the last Outdoorfest had an ick-y name.

Or the fact that Nikki, as a character, grew out of that.

You guys always seem to know every step I make with the strip better than I do… Did you know all that?

Bic, if you picked out your nickname ’cause you figured that out, I’m impressed.  If, however, you’re nicknamed for your favorite type of ink pen, well, I appreciate the opportunity to put you in Rick’s team.
