Things I've Learned So Far

Don't ask the instructor -- who is an attorney -- why you would ever need to hire an attorney if a paralegal can do all the paperwork and case preparation ...

and don't ask the instructor if bringing in case studies drawn from Judge Judy can substitute for the library research assignment.

Don't roll your eyes so obviously that the younger kids notice.

Sometimes even 19 year olds should not wear midriff-baring t-shirts ...

However, the majority of these kids have bodies to die for. Darn their 19 year old selves.

Don't drink a boatload of coffee before a four-hour chunk of class time, especially when the instructor has stated she "doesn't believe" in breaks.

The Manolo would not approve of many college instructors' choice of thick-soled maryjanes accessorized with somewhat stubbly bare legs. Just sayin'.

Today's fragrance: something to compete with all the estrogen, Victoria's Secret, testosterone and Axe wafting around the room.

OMG! You are so funny. Damn those 19 year olds in bare midriffs.

(and PS, I have a good friend who is a paralegal, and she has asked question one many, many times)

When my nephew became a lawyer (an assistant DA - proud aunt here) I had to stop the lawyer jokes. But....what was the teacher's answer to judge judy?

Ha! Try being the only 22 year old surrounded by returning students the age of your parents... geting a masters in Adult Education when your text book doesn't even deem you an adult.

Mireille, many returning adult students feel out of sinc because of the age thing. Trust me, you've got advantages those unclothed 19 year old hussies can't touch: experience, knowledge, taste...

stiff upper lip!
