The write-up was quite simple. About the only thing they wrote on it was “Covered in bees.”
Surprisingly they still didn’t send him home.
I know I have occasionally lamented the difficulties of academia, but it sure beats the hell out of being in an office. I’ve heard someone going into the medical field say that part of their reason was not having to work in an office environment. Not quite altruism, but I can’t say I blame them. The corporate workplace combines several of the things worst for a human: long stints of time indoors, long stretches of sitting, spending a lot of time staring at a computer screen in most cases. Makes the day awfully long.
There’s also the risk of bees.
I think the real problem is the whole deal just reminds you you’re not doing what you want to be doing. It’s a place-filler. The thing you do for some money to do things you want to do. Floyd and I have been hard at work “after hours” to get this comic up and running the way you’ve come to expect. The artistic axis in particular has practically been Floyd’s night job. He’s just looking forward to that (terrifying) time where you start seriously considering making that thing you like doing into your job job. Keep your fingers crossed for us, dear readers. Tell your friends you know this guy who just really wants to start doing what he’s passionate about.
If you could find him some ointment or something for the stingers, that’d be sweet too.
