This anecdote is not about the above drawing, it's about my co-worker Steve. I could do a whole blog about Steve. Steve makes me laugh, sometimes intentionally, sometimes not. Here's a not: He returned the other day from a meeting with a prospective client, saying that he didn't actually close a deal, "but I got my foot in the drawer." One reason I find this kind of thing charming is that my late brother-in-law, who was in all ways loveable, gave the English language the same kind of unexpected twist. Once, listening to Leonard Bernstein, of all people, describe a project, he said, "That sounds like something I could really sink my meat into!"
