It is so strange to be me
For those who read this blog but do not know me personally, I am a locally prominent criminal defense and family law attorney. I have handled countless cases, been on TV and radio, and done lots of advertising. I have a warehouse filled with thousands of old cases. I have made enemies beyond number.
I went to Walmart today. It’s pretty rare I go shopping, but today was the day. A big middle-aged white guy, a total stranger, started staring angrily at me from at least fifty yards away. He then slowly walked up to me. When I say he looked angry, I mean his eyes just burned with pure hatred and rage. He looked at me with such intensity that when he got close, I started to take evasive action. I thought he was going to hit me. Then he wordlessly walked past me.
About once a year, somebody barely restrains the urge to just run up to me and start pounding on me. It never stops freaking me out. And I can never figure out what the heck their problem is…
