Today, I finally got the internet installed at my new office. Yes, I only had to wait 1.5 days after my grand opening, but let me tell you: it was horrible. I pride myself on being more technologically advanced than any other debtor’s attorney in town (which, in Mobile, Alabama, is easier than in most places), but living right next to the Information Superhighway (remember when people used to say that, back in the 90s?) has one drawback: you can’t do much without it.
Now, it wasn’t actually impossible: I was able to work from home. But it was a pain. Working from home may be an ok idea for those 29 year old hipsters who live in big cities and have no kids or families, but if you have a 3 year old kicking noisy toys down the stairs and a 9 month old grabbing your pants leg to try and get you to pick him up, you don’t get much accomplished – other than make your wife happy because she finally gets a break while the babies crawl over you for a change.
But fortunately, I’m BACK! Expect more groundbreaking legal strategy, Gulf of Mexico Oilwell-deep insight, and biting social commentary to come.
