Day 238, week 48: the folly

As the tenancy decision looms, I do have to question quite what I’m letting myself in for.  At the moment I’d give my right arm for a tenancy but I guess it might just be the nerves kicking in but a large part of me wonders what it’s all about.  This whole legal business.  It’s like a large folly constructed by lawyers centuries ago for the self-preservation of lawyers.  It’s a rare occasion when I see a day which they don’t come off best.  Now don’t get me wrong.  I’m sure justice is often done.  But the whole foundation of this elaborate folly means that this is merely incidental to the main event.  Costs, costs and more costs.  But there again, why should I worry?  If some of the greatest minds in history have spent their lives building it, why not take advantage and apply for a tenancy within? 

I guess when it’s an all or nothing thing at the end of this month and with TheBoss about to knife me at his hearing and HeadClerk still smarting at my having missed a case, I’m preparing myself for the worst.  Perhaps bracing myself to let go and tell them I never wanted it anyway.  “Like, whatever.”

Except I do want it.  Badly.
