As Johnny Law’s final semester of law school’s been winding down, I’ve been reminiscing about the odd chain of events that transpired in order for me to agree to come along for the ride. In particular I’ve recalled some of the funny/random/insulting/ just plain odd comments people enlightened me with after they heard about our CRAZY plan to move a whole 7 hours away for him to go to school.
I’ve included a few of them here, but I’m secretly hoping to hear some doozies from the very few readers of this blog. Even if they didn’t involve law school, what are some of the most ridiculous backhanded compliments/lectures you’ve received? I’m sure someone’s got to be able to top me.
- Well, (insert name here) put (insert name here) through law school and we all know how that one turned out. (ouch!)
- Oh, you’re engaged, and moving away…wow, well he’s in law school- that’s nice that you’ll have someone to take care of you. (Yes, thank you, I’m sure I’ll be well taken care of.. if by that you mean my lousy salary will be carrying the load and I won’t actually see my husband during daylight hours for the majority of three years.)
- You’re gonna need to buy some tie dye and Birkenstocks.
- Johnny Law’s a nice guy. You just tell him not to become an ass—- like all those other lawyers out there.
