Kid offers new definition of lawsuit
So I'm driving down the street with my 7-year-old son, who I've just picked up from school. I'm wearing a suit and tie from one of my on-campus interviews earlier in the day, and we're talking about how we both need to do our homework as soon as we get home. I tell him that I have a lot of reading to do for law school, and that most of it involves reading about lawsuits. I ask him if he knows what a lawsuit is, and he gives me one of those looks that means, "Of course, Daddy, I obviously know what it means." OK, I respond, then what is a lawsuit? Without hesitation, he looks at me and says: "Well, you're wearing one."
