    Matthew works at my old high school, which was in a very tough neighborhood. Matthew is the Assistant Coroner at the school and hopes for a limited career.

    How about part time/ casual?

    From the positioning of Matthew’s hands and the look on his face, I’d say l’d say his “career” is stretched to its limits. And if he doesn’t quit dreaming about skinny dipping in the secretarial pool he could be at the climax of his career.

    ok, it just begs the question… who’s hiding under the desk?

    This comic is on my reading list only because of your back stories.

    As Matthew ponders the week end work shop, sponsored by the “Brothers of Right Thinking”, entitled, “How to Avoid the Monday Morning Blues” he realizes it was not very effective.

    Well, thanks for that. Sort of a “Reader’s Digest” version today. I see Lefty went that way as well.

    In answer to the caption: Yes, there might.
    “The good is the enemy of the best” only if you have a particular craving for perpetual frustration and stress, because no matter how high you attain, you’re never there.
    It makes at least as much sense to conclude that the best is the enemy of the pretty darn good.

    So Matthew’s career doesn’t make many stops or carry many passengers then…

    i guess it depends on what his 401K looks like right now.

    It looks as though that striking thought rang his bell.
