When we meet people on our travels they often ask what we do for a living. My favourite reaction to “I’m a lawyer” was from an Indian man who looked at me with silent awe and then shook my hand. But the more common reaction is “You don’t look like a lawyer“. I’m not entirely sure what this means, but I try to take it as a compliment. I’ve been told I don’t look like a lawyer in all sorts of places, which begs the question: who does look like a lawyer when they’re wearing a bikini or their hiking gear? I bet even Lord Denning didn’t look that judicial in his swimming trunks.
