Here's this week's strip. Some might think that I'm ripping off a joke from The Simpsons ("I'm not wearing a tie!"), but the more dedicated TV geek will realize that the Simpsons writers and I have simply drawn from the same parody pool. Both jokes refer to an episode of L.A. Law where Harry Hamlin pulls this on a witness he's cross examining. When Harry does it it's obviously more dramatic. And, you know, handsome.
I think I was inspired to revisit my future in litigation after a few particularly good weeks in my trial class. Now that I've more or less conquered the initial performance anxiety I've been trying to find creative ways to conduct the assignments, which has made the whole process more fun. I may have hit a limit last week when I subjected individual jurors to leering, sexualized comments during my closing argument, but damned if I didn't have fun doing it. Having Molly play my sexual harassment plaintiff was also good times. She gave an outstanding performance, and a four-hour class is somehow more tolerable when your wife is across the room.
Before I gush any further we'll see what the rest of the semester brings. I get the feeling things are about to get much more intense.
