On a silver platter.

I got my ass handed to me in court today.
More than once.
And sadly, I can't say that it was undeserved. My boss has a theory of throwing me into the water to see if I sink or swim. Today was mostly sinking with a lead weight tied around my feet.

Now, I'm trying to learn from it, and forget it. The forgetting it is the hard part. I keep re-living it all night, and it gets uglier the more I remember. Maybe someday I can look back on this fondly and tell some story about my initiation to the practice of law. But that won't be today. Or tomorrow. And probably not next week either.
