i will write less about work once my soul is crushed: stay tuned

Matthew hates Mondays. Mondays overflow, spilling out of the confines of their calendar boxes and flooding the surrounding days with their murky swill. Sunday is completely drowned, soaked and sagging under the weight of the coming week's misery. Some of Monday is even beginning to seep into Saturday nights as the weekend shrinks from the moisture.

His new ID badge is poor, and even though the picture shows Matthew smiling, the desperation is evident in his eyes. This is the false smile of a trapped man, someone hopeless and scared. It is a grotesque and depressing picture of a condemned cubicle-dweller, plus his hair looks stupid. And he has to wear it around all day. Matthew complains about the picture in passing to his boss.

His boss says, "That's not a bad picture. It looks just like you."

"Jeez," says Matthew, "Harsh."
