I went to an art show and saw a drawing titled, "Werewolf Accountant." Mr. Werewolf had a furry face, fangs, and wore a loosened necktie and a rumpled shirt with a pocket stuffed with pens and pencils. He looked wasted from crunching numbers. His expression: "My day job sucks."
We don't imagine superheroes or supernatural creatures as having day jobs. But if they live among us, how do they pay their bills? I can see a vampire using his mojo to score a place to crash. The flip side is that suppose he does shack up with a sugar mamma, then our feared vampire comes off looking like a mooching gigolo.
Batman sidesteps the question by being the alter ego of Bruce Wayne, billionaire. That's a day job I could handle. Billionaire. Any offers?
The new Batwoman is also rich. And she's a lesbian which conjures interesting visuals when she talks about, "strapping on the utility belt."
Superman works as Clark Kent, reporter for the Daily Planet. But that's not a real "day job." Clark Kent can leave work whenever he wants and he never frets over a measly cost-of-living raise.
I prefer to think that modern supernaturals take on day jobs more to keep busy and blend in with human society. These vampires or werewolves could use the pocket change but really, what's to keep them from skipping out from under a mortgage? "I'm an undead immortal, what the hell do I care about a bad credit rating."
So unlike vampires or Batman, I have to punch the clock at a day job. That is, until I become immortal, or a billionaire. Whichever comes first.
