Day 57 of theÂ 90 Days of AwesomeÂ is in the bank! What made today awesome? I got to laugh at work.
When most people think about the practice of law, they probably don’t picture people laughing at their desks (except maybe the evil laugh). I’m lucky that I get a lot of joy from my work and sometimes my work is so much fun it makes me laugh. And part of my job is keeping up with contacts on social media, which tends to make me burst out laughing throughout the day. Here are two of today’s highlights:
1. Â My friend, The Namby Pamby, tweeted:
You should be able to heckle at court hearings.
â€” Namby Pamby (@thenambypamby) July 27, 2015
I responded that he and I would be Statler and Waldorf from the Muppets if that were allowed.
2. Â I’m working on a contract right now that might be the best contract I’ve ever written. (It could top the one where one party had to attest to the other that he is â€œa sexy bitch.â€) I love it when my clients are thoughtful and creative with their contracts. This one is a licensing agreement for a unique project and my client is a down-to-earth, somewhat blunt entrepreneur and I’m trying to write in his voice rather than legalese. I asked him if he wanted any â€œEaster eggsâ€ in his contract and he gave me some suggestions. I wish more clients asked me to write crazy awesome clauses in their contracts.
I love my work.
