Tuesday Badinage: August 23, 2016

By: Gabriela Yareliz

In court, I ran into an opposing counsel who had on two different shoes.

“I will fess up to you,” he said to me as I walked with a colleague.

He told me that in the morning, as he was taking off his shoes after driving, changing into work shoes, he only managed to put on one work shoe and forgot to change the other. The other shoe was an Adidas slider (with a black sports sock). He didn’t realize he was wearing two different shoes until he was in court and a colleague pointed it out.
I was walking behind him as he was faking a limp. He said faking the limp made it so people didn’t ask him questions about his mismatched shoes. I laughed in disbelief. This is what court does to some– it makes them lose their mind.

Here’s to summer madness and wearing whatever shoe you want on each foot! #limpsoldseperately

Dialogue of the week:

“Don’t call her Leo! It makes me think of Leonard DiCaprio!” (G)

“I don’t think about Leonardo DiCaprio. I forget he is still alive, okay?” (F)
