Put Me In Coach

I start my new internship tomorrow, ending my two month sabbatical from the real world.  I'm nervous.  It feels like the first day of school all over again, except that I'm like a first grader taking classes with seniors.  I'm excited and, of course, have a snappy outfit picked out that I hope says, "Hi there, I'm Laura, confident and able soon to be attorney with dash of sass after we're all well acquainted."  To the untrained eye, it's a wool suit from Macy's.  When I was picking out my first-day suit I remembered a Locke family story about Craig's younger brother.  When he was a kid he was so excited to start baseball that he laid out his uniform with socks tucked in the shoes and with a hat and everything.  Craig said that when they asked him what he was doing, he told them that it was baseball man.  I didn't see it obviously, but in my mind it looks like the scene in Who Framed Roger Rabbit? when Judge Doom was flattened by the stream roller.  We weren't a big movie family and that was one of the maybe five that we had, so I've seen it a couple times!  Anyway, I think that story is adorable and I can relate to that excitement.

In honor of Steven and without further ado, allow me to introduce you to Lawyer Lady.  She'll be headlining in the guest room until tomorrow.
