We’ve reviewed your writing sample, and it’s quite impressive

“We’ve reviewed your writing sample, and it’s quite impressive.”


“Thank you. I enjoy research.”


They nodded and acknowledged this obvious lie. It was part of the ritual. No law student or lawyer in his right mind enjoyed research, yet, without fail, every prospective associate professed a deep love for the library.


“Tell us about your wife,” Royce McKnight said, almost meekly. They braced for another reprimand. But it was a standard, nonsacred area explored by every firm.


“Her name is Abby. She has a degree in elementary education from Western Kentucky . We graduated one week and got married the next. For the past three years she’s taught at a private kindergarten near Boston College.”


“And is the marriage–”


“We’re very happy. We’ve known each other since high school.”


“What position did you play?” asked Lamar, in the direction of less sensitive matters.


“Quarterback. I was heavily recruited until I messed up a knee in my last high school game. Everyone disappeared except Western Kentucky . I played off and on for four years, even started some as a junior, but the knee would never hold up.”


“How’d you make straight A’s and play football?”


“I put the books first.”


“I don’t imagine Western Kentucky  is much of an academic school,” Lamar blurted with a stupid grin, and immediately wished he could take it back. Lambert and McKnight frowned and acknowledged the mistake.
