Then I start thinking about the boss and perhaps I hear great roaring sounds of battle first. After the smoke clears away I see him, the Old Man. Harvard or Princeton '03, a vegetarian except for the fact that once in a while he eats nervous bookkeepers asking for a raise.
I decide to
make it even tougher for the bookkeeper by making the boss real busy this day. . . lots of orders on his desk, five phones ringing, secretaries barging in and out. . . (aren't cartoonists sadistic?)
Will the bookkeeper get the raise? Will the boss say yes or throw him out of the 84th floor window? For
the answer to this and other startling questions turn to the next page.
