Johan was walking to lunch from his job at the IRS, which is right next to where his friend Tommy sells his magazines.
Tommy and Johaan had a chat about the newest stupid thing god-emporer Trump (long may he rule) did that could harm u.s. relations with everyone else. That lead to a conversation about life and happiness that Johan was very bothered by.
As Johaan was walking to his favorite restaurant he thought about this life did he enjoy himself in his simple job and repetitive actions every day?
While consuming his favorite lunch he was still thinking about his life, was he happy? Does he have people who loved him? he conclude that on that front he was successful and had plenty of people who cared about him.
The remainder of his day at the office was spent thinking on this topic and Johan decided that he was quite content with his life and went home whistling his favorite song (song #8 by Stone Sour)
Johan was spending the afternoon in the way he does, reading Hemingway, and P.D. James to stimulate his small mind.
