Too many crime dramas

The other day J and I saw a lawyer to attend to some very basic, non-interesting things. We haven't had much experience with lawyers except when we closed on our house, and of course with friends of ours who are in the profession. Basically, our knowledge of the transactions that take place in law offices has been gained through television and movies, and in that respect, man, do we know our stuff! So as we waited in the lobby I cautioned J that we were probably gonna be billed $500 an hour so we had better watch how much time we spend in there.

And then, when we were finally seated in the conference room, facing one another across a wide table with papers spread out between us, J giddily pointed out, "It is JUST LIKE we are getting a divorce!"
