Trick or Treat?

Photograph by Ralph Eugene Meatyard

It’s been an eventful week. What with the blogaversary on Tuesday, Halloween today, and Wednesday and Thursday spent in legal dispute. I wish I could say more about that, but I can’t...

What I will say is that my solicitor is quite an inspiring character. The case was challenging and the time frame tight. There was a wonderful moment when this ordinarily composed, curly haired man with highly polished shoes, slammed down the phone at the end of a call to someone on our side, put his head in his hands, and said, “Sweet Jesus! We need a plan.” Then he bit his nails as his eyes flashed left and right.

I love the way people act when under pressure or thinking out loud.

My side emerged in victory. Thank heavens! And I feel very pleased but peculiarly drained. Most appropriate for Halloween. Though this evening, I really can’t write for toffee.

Happy Halloween!

The best formidable solicitors are called Aenus and never ever crack under pressure.

Mary said...

They sound perfect! I shall bear Aenus in mind for the future.

Glad to hear it turned out. And yes, the Meatyard is tres cool.

I giggle every time I read "Meatyard." I admit it.

Mary said...

Me too! :)
