Jeremy's Weblog

I recently graduated from Harvard Law School. This is my weblog. It tries to be funny. E-mail me if you like it. For an index of what's lurking in the archives, sorted by category, click here.

A pointless multiple-choice game here. Here's most of a sentence I just wrote in an e-mail to a friend:

"I still have no idea how people manage to work at a job for 20, 30, 40, 50 years -- if it's not their passion and they're just there to collect a paycheck -- long hours, lots of days a week -- [BLANK]"

Help me fill that [BLANK] in. What I ended up writing was one of these eight things:

A) "although I suppose collecting that paycheck isn't a bad reason to be there."
B) "but I guess that's all of our likely fates since how many people can really work at something they love?"
C) "without throwing themselves in front of a train or something."
D) "so perhaps I should ask an investment banker to explain it to me."
E) "but I guess they manage okay and I'll figure it out eventually."
F) "and still find the strength to wake up every morning."
G) "but I admire them for being able to do it."
H) "and I guess that's why I still have two more years of law school left."

Can you tell which one? I think it's kind of cool I was able to think of 8 different ways to end that sentence!
