Year 2, week 33: old dog new tricks

There’s a solicitors firm in North London which is holding a party this evening for which the invitation states, “Please bring a party trick.” Which of course was the hot topic of conversation and indeed speculation at Chambers Tea. As is often the case, the best line of the day belonged to OldSmoothie and came from a polite question from TheCreep to UpTights in which he asked: “So have you learnt any new tricks for the party UpTights?”

Quick as a flash and before she was even able to start an answer, OldSmoothie was in there for the kill and even the more wine-addled members of chambers winced as he made his strike. “New tricks? You what? Everyone knows you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.”
