You may notice a slight change in my profile. My good friend from college, Jane*, has been insisting for a while now that I remove the word “former” in front of “lawyer.”
“You think like a lawyer,” she said. “You write like a lawyer. You think and write differently than you did before you went to law school. Face it, you’re going to be a lawyer until the day you die.”
She may be right. In any case, I promised her I would I would change my profile. It’s nice to have people appreciate my writing.
Now If I could only remember to proofread like a lawyer.
*Jane is a litigator. I think she’s wonderful, but I would never want to face her in a courtroom.
