When Dreams Go Weird
I just thought I'd share this rather odd dream of mine. I am NOT a morning person by any stretch of the imagination. This usually results in one alarm going off at 7:00, one at 7:24, and the final at 7:32. After that its a mad rush to get to work by my appointed start time of 8:30.
I know what you're thinking: "Justin, how on earth do you expect to be successful as an attorney if you're not waking up early?!" Easy, I stay late, usually until 7 or 8 at night, and I bring work home with me for a little light reading. I function much better as a night owl. I ramp up my brain in the morning hours with the blogging.
Anyhow, this morning found me taking my usual late morning 7:24-7:32 snooze when I had the following dream. I was talking with the partner to whom I'm assigned. Those of you that know him, know that he is a wine buff. Turns out (at least in the dream) this had more than a little to do with his success as a trial attorney.
You see, in my dream world, in order to settle cases, you had to pour a very nice bottle of wine into the drain if you were a plaintiff. I commented that it was a shame, and who would know if we just didn't pour it down the drain, instead emptying it into some other container. The partner commented that it would be a violation of the RPCs (Rules of Professional Conduct) to do otherwise, and he wasn't about to stake his reputation as a great trial lawyer on saving a bottle of wine.
