Work

Here's a spread from my book inspired by a day in my office. I manage a marketing group; about 1/3 of the group has been there for 10+ years, 1/3 has been around 5-6 years, and 1/3 is fairly fresh out of college. It's a good balance, and I've made great efforts to build a cohesive team. Sean, to the left, keeps suggesting he's going to write about some our innappropriate moments (such as when I hosted an "unveiling" party for one of our teammates who got a boob job). Anyway, Sean was meeting with me and Katha when suddenly, for no apparent reason he started making this monster face. In the second image, we were discussing the recent death of family friend of one of our teammates. I was asked if he was old or young, and I replied, "60. Young for 'death,' but not for 'life.'"

is 60 young for death? I would be happy to reach 60. I'm always kind of frightened by people making all those big plans for whenever they're gonna be old and retired. That seems to be like a sort of gambling.

I do think 60 is young to die. You should be happy to make it until tomorrow. And yes,I agree that one should not put off plans until retirement.

You are spewing poetry, Tim!

Don't know if I would call it a "monster face."
