Career Goals

As some of you know, I have a top secret job. You might also know that this Top Secret job has nothing to do with Psychology, the field in which I have a Bachelors Degree.

I have been thinking a lot about what I really want to do with my life, and yesterday after watching the movie "Watchmen", inspiration struck, and I just knew.

I want to be a SuperHero.

I figure it will mostly involve things like this:

(click on the picture to read the fine print)

My superhero name will be "The Heropotamus". I figure I will save living things from a most certain death and then have therapy sessions with them so they can deal with the Post traumatic stress they will most certainly be suffering from .

Saving their lives will be free, but I will charge a competitive rate for each therapy session.

All I have to do now is learn how to fly. This shouldn't be too difficult. I must ask all 6 of my readers to keep this information confidential once I hit the headlines of every major and minor newspaper in every city in the world. Thank you.

a) Heropotamus is perhaps the best hero name I've heard of, ever.

b) I formally request a photo of said hippopotamus hat, bonus if it's on your head (in the photo), but that is not obligatory. So long as we get to see the hat!

How is it that you were inspired by that movie..... I had a really hard time even watching it.

Josh said...

Ha! Awesome! And you got a hippo hat? I want to see it too.

(I actually just started a comic strip called Heropotamus, it wasn't inspired by "The Watchmen" though... )

just remember the dangers of the cape, as described in The Incredibles...

anon - Roll on Floor Laughing? Reveal yourself.

Syar - a.) isn't it though?!?!?

b.) I'm working on the hippo hat photo.

Amanda - it was definitely long, but I still liked it.

Josh - The fact that you recently started a comic strip called Heropotamus is extremely weird to me . . . but I checked it out and it's pretty cool.

Cadiz - I know being a superhero comes with it's dangers, but I think I will earn enough from the therapy sessions to be able to afford medical insurance for everyday ordinary Madelyn. I hope.
