A Few Good Men

Raft3r enjoys plane rides.

If I can do it everyday, I would. Jetlag is a word that does not exist in my vocabulary.

It would have been a hard pill to swallow if it was the opposite. My work entails a lot of traveling.

On my flight to Baltimore, the woman seated next to me was a pretty interesting character. I love talking to strangers. You should know that by now.

As it turned out, she’s an Alameda County lawyer. The conversation quickly revolved around law school and how it made both our lives miserable.

My mother would have been proud. I exchanged legal goobledegook with a trained professional.

The lawyer expressed her dismay that I dropped out of law school. Raft3r retaliated by declaring it was the decision I have made since switching to low fat milk.

Apparently, she specializes in probate proceedings. It’s the same subject Raft3r flunked in law school.

How's that for irony?
