What Have I Created?

So I got home this evening from my latest trip just in time to have a tete-a-tete dinner with the eldest Llama-ette, who wanted to know just what the devil I was doing on all these jaunts.

I gave her a brief overview of the framework of civil litigation, explaining in particular the discovery process and the role of depositions in particular in terms of building a body of evidence. I also gave her a brief substantive summary of exactly what I've been working on.

The result? The gel wants to go out with me and sit in on depositions. She believes she could pass notes to the lawyers to help them get the most out of their witnesses. I must say that from the way she grasped the legal concepts I explained to her, she just might be of some use.

Heh. A comment about apples not falling far from the tree might be appropriate here...

From everything you've said about the girls here, I'm not at all surprised that they are intelligent, inquisitive and self-confident. They are going to keep you on your toes!

Remind me never to introduce my son to your daughters. The results might be frightening.
