In my physics class in high school, my friend Rich and I used to talk about how we’d rather stick hot pokers in our eyes than continue under the pressure of homework, exams, quizzes, and projects.
I thought of Rich recently when sitting in a long meeting at work and sketched this guy. Funny, Rich is now a middle school science teacher in southern Maryland.
My boss thought it was an indicator of my feelings for sitting through the meeting. Really, I just wanted to draw a picture of a guy that pulled his eye out with a stick.
