Man: Mr. Harris, I've been looking over your academic transcript, and I've been trying to find the right word to describe your career here... "Checkered" comes to mind, of course. "Disastrous" also suggests itself. As does "catastrophic..." Zonker: How about "colorful?" Or perhaps "remarkable." Man: Yes, those are applicable. "Colorful" certainly reflects the spirit of your record and who could argue with "remarkable." Zonker: Who indeed? Man: And yet "catastrophic" stays with me... Zonker: You're fixating. Put it aside for awhile.
