Well it's been a while, but it took humor to break me out of the blog doldrums I was in. Â Cheers to humor, we don't get enough of that in this business. Â Don't get me wrong, criminal lawyers do have a sense of humor. Â But it's most often kept in the professional circles, much as I imagine paramedics, firefighters, or morticians joke amongst themselves. Â In professions where things often don't end pleasantly, finding the lighter side of things can make it easier to keep plugging along. Â What else you gonna do?
After a long absence from writing, I finally found a current event significant enough to sit down and blog about, and it's not Obamacare. Â Like a lot of other people, for a while I ended up making the best use of my liberal arts degree (Psych/Soc) by waiting tables and bartending. Â I was lucky enough to end up in my current career, where trying to understand the minds of people plays a large part of my daily activities, particularly in jury trials. Â
Figured it was time to write another fluff piece.Â If you couldn't detect the sarcasm in the title, it's a News Flash! in the muppets sense.Â Rumor has it pretty people also get jobs you didn't get, have drinks bought for them, and get more dates than you do (no matter what they say).
