Apologies to Mariel

In the Friday Drive-by a couple weeks ago I came across Mariel’s post on her occasional law school-related nightmares. Having never had anything of the sort myself, I’ll confess I was amused.

Until now…

Not sure if it’s the L&O:SVU reruns or me learning to be a drug dealer or reading about sketchy people + gunshots at other blogs.

Whatever the origins, I mentally found myself inadvertently involved in a botched drug deal where 3 classmates had been shot by a 4th, yet *I* somehow ended up with the cocaine for the deal in one pocket and the $500 cash to pay for it in the other (even though I was just trying to go to the law library to study for finals).

I woke up amid trying to (i) figure out how to turn everything over to the police without implicating myself, (ii) avoid getting sued by the dealer for conversion of the cocaine, and (iii) determine if the cash was lost, mislaid or abandoned to see if I could keep it :beatup:

Needless to say, it was an experience I prefer not to repeat.

So to Mariel, I just wanted to formally apologize for being amused at the torment you endured at the hands of your law school nightmares. Apparently they’re more common than I realized :crack:

And the second: lol

And the third: No really, it happens to the best of us. At least yours was a highly entertaining near-episode of Law and Order: Criminal Intent. Mine? I’ve started dreaming about my outlines.


I’m sure my dreams will be more entertaining next semester once I’ve got Crim and Con Law.

Until then, I’m hoping for 3 weeks of winter-break induced DREAMLESS sleep.

I’m wondering what’s going to happen when we get into Decedents’ Estates or whatever it’s called… intestate zombies rising from the dead to avenge an improperly executed will? :)
