Tossed Salad Friday

~~The four people sitting around the table with me were unintentionally mood-boosting. One had replacement knees, another had artificial hips, a third was recovering from a heart attack, and the fourth had two kids to put through college. I don’t want to sound cocky, or invite some vengeful spirits to send any more trouble my way, but… I’ve got all my original parts and my son is in his last year of college, la-de-da!

~~ A client from years ago e-mailed me recently: You’d be so proud of me! A cousin asked me to co-sign a loan by saying, “It’s just some formality for you to sign. I’ll have all the responsibility.” I replied, “Oh, no! A lawyer once told me ‘nothing is more valuable than your signature’ and I’m not giving it to you for free!”

~~ A colleague’s friend was flabbergasted that an online legal document company wasn’t the best resource for drawing up a Will. “You mean people actually go to lawyers for Wills?” she was asked. The handwriting on the wall is fairly obvious as to the long-term prospects of many making a living as a lawyer. No wonder I overheard an attorney saying, “I used to sue for a living; now I think I may have to sell shoes.”

~~ The woman appeared to be so elegant. She was beautifully dressed and exquisitely groomed—her eyes sparkled almost as much as her jewels I admit to feeling a bit envious until she declared, “I could really use a sandwich! I haven’t eaten almost anything in two days to fit into this outfit, and on top of that, my frickin’ shoes are killing me.”

~~Take heed, Boy Scouts, about how you’re perceived. A person I’d just met, on hearing that I had a 21-year-old son, asked, “Did your son join Boy Scouts when he was in grade school? Was it a relevant program then, or did you know back then how much they discriminated?”

~~The readers of this blog are fantastic! I’ve had dental suggestions and printer recommendations— thanks for your concern.

I can't believe your seminar got cancelled again.

30 inches! How about you?

My seminar is quite unpopular with Mother Nature.
