Ya Win Some & Ya Lose Some

Ya Win Some & Ya Lose Some

I like to enter contests, like this photo caption contest recently held by Above the Law for this picture:

My entry:

Attorney Dino Saur felt a vague sense of unease when he realized he hadn’t heard a peep out of his paralegal’s office in two days and wished he’d been nicer when she suggested that the office go paperless.

Okay, maybe you had to be there. (I’m pestering my attorneys constantly to go paperless. I bet the thought of burying me under paper has crossed their minds more than once.)

The winning entry:

We are not currently conducting any 3L hiring, but we will keep your resume on file as our needs change.

Hehe. Good one. (Or maybe a little mean, if you’re a law school student.)

So I didn’t win this one. I did win virtual assistant Tina Marie Hilton’s “Excuse Buster” contest for free blog coaching.

My winning excuse:

My blog doesn’t have a sponsor & my personal assistant is a Corgi that eats cat poo. I am clearly the most needy of your entrants 🙂

I’d like to say it was my wit that won the day, but Tina drew my excuse out of a hat.

But I’m really excited about working with Tina to make Practical Paralegalism a better resource for paralegals.
