Second Thoughts

At some point in my life, I decided that I wanted to be a Lawyer. Only time will tell if I was correct, or completely misjudged myself. However, I recently learned things that make me think I made the wrong decision.

I have tried to avoid one thing like it was the plague in my life, and no, it is not a meaningful relationship with another human being. Apparently, when you pass the Bar, you get fingerprinted. This is not good. My whole life I have successfully avoided being fingerprinted, and now it is only a matter of time. Even the time the cop took me downtown, I was able to avoid touching the ink pad.

The printing will occur in two years, meaning that the Statute of Limitations will not have run yet for most of the fun crimes. Not that I ever plan on committing any crimes, but it was nice to have that option available.

Oh well, guess from now on, I will always wear latex gloves. Or at least I can procure one of those devices from Men In Black.

I hope by "always" you mean always when committing a crime. Because always ALWAYS...that is a big red flag. It might make that whole meaningful relationship just a teensy bit difficult. ;)

Have a great Sunday.

Yeah, if i ever see always or never on an exam, the answer becomes much more clear. Of course the Profs are too smart for that these days.

The latex gloves always stay in my back pocket, so they are there if i need them. Seems like a good compromise.
