So I worked the Legal Aid intake clinic last night. I think it was good for me. A little slap upside the head to remind me that there are plenty of people with even worse lives than me right now.
And it was nice to have a reason to put on my suit and heels and look like a lawyer again.
The clinic was about 20 miles away, along back country roads. I was driving back home at dusk when I saw a unicorn walking toward the road. What's that you say? There's no such thing as unicorns? That's kind of what I was thinking, too. But it was a big white horse with something sticking straight up on top of its head.
As I passed, I realized that it was its ears sticking up. But they were long ears--like a donkey. And this animal was bigger than a donkey--and I've never seen a white donkey. Maybe it was a white mule with long donkey ears. But my dad has a mule and it has short horse ears. So I'm just going to stick with unicorn.
Hopefully it's a sign of good things to come. Or maybe its just a sign that I'm losing my mind.
