If I hadn’t gone to law school, if I hadn’t been the top of the bottom third of my class, if I hadn’t flunked every interview I had for a legal position, I never would have met him.
But I did.
He was my first boss. That lasted about 2 days as the annual supervisor shuffle happened right after I got there. We became sorta friends. Then we became friends. Then… well, you know the story.
Everyone we knew warned us. “This won’t last”, “Two lawyers don’t make for a good relationship”,, etc.
The greatest challenge? How to avoid cross-examination during any conversation.
It’s been 27 years. We are both retired.
We still cross-examine each other.
