Reader Updates: Trials and Tiles
On April 19th, our Bubby received a letter from a stressed-out law student who had just flipped out in class. Standing before her class during a mock-trial, our legal reader wrote Bubby, "I totally absolutely froze like an icicle. Then I started melting and my eyes started tearing and before I knew it... I ran out of the classroom crying."
Bubbys' had a few years experience with lawyer lament, so she wasted no time telling this young woman, "Cheer up... When you lose a fight you get up, dust yourself off and get right into the fight again." She had no doubt that with the proper preparation, a healthy dose of confidence, and a nice new blouse, our aspiring lawyer would come back on top.
So, what ever happened to "Laughing Legal Stock"? Is she cracking up... Or cracking the whip?
In case you wanted to know what ever happened to my oral arguments for law school, they turned out well! I was nervous but I did well in the first round of the competition and got called back to the second round. Unfortunately I didn't get picked for the Moot Court team after the second round. But it was a definite confidence boost to do well enough to make it past the first round. Especially after my total wipeout in the practice session.
I am taking two classes this summer for which I have to give oral presentations. Your advice helped last time and I will use it again to help myself gear up this time. But no matter what happens, it can't possibly be as bad as the first experience. I guess that's the good thing about falling down. There's really only one place you can go -- up!
All the best,
No longer a legal laughing stock
Conquering the caulking...
Back on November 13, Denice wrote to us about the calking in her shower turning black. She needed a non-abrasive, whitening solution, and FAST. Well, Bubby recalled a story (many years back) when her husband tried to do the same for their own shower, only to find that the bleach he was using burned through his rubber gloves down to his fingers, and it took 6 weeks to recover! Above all, she cautioned Denice, "Certainly don't do it yourself."
Well, this is one time when a reader didn't take Bubby's advice...and it turned out OK!
The chlorox bleach stick did wonders!
So, here's to all lawyers and clean bathtubs everywhere.
From, the granddaughters, and...
