I'm an expert

I love story time. It was one of my favorite things growing up and with grandparents like mine, it still is. But instead of listening to a wonderful story told by an amazing storyteller, I'm going to subject you to my storytelling skillz.

Once upon a time, I was called to be an expert witness in an incredibly important court case. My expertise could very possibly be the turning point of a case involving someones terrible accidental death. SO IMPORTANT. To say that I was nervous when I entered that court room is an understatement. There was so much riding on my being the perfect expert witness! I had to be professional, unbiased, and persuasive, all while seeming like I was cool as a cucumber even though on the inside I was picturing myself in an upcoming episode of Law and Order.  Thankfully, I killed it. I walked up to that witness stand and owned the room better than a drag queen on RuPaul's Drag Race. I even used my extensive knowledge of materials to wow the judge and jury with my massive brain. Lets just say, if I'd had a mic, I'd have dropped it like it was hot. I won't know what happened with the case for a bit, but I'm 100% sure that my crazy good witness skillz will be the tipping point.

Okay, in all honesty, I was helping out a friend for her trial advocacy class. My "witness skillz" were scripted and thankfully, I just had to read my script. I did get to use my jewelry knowledge though which was fun (thanks for teaching me all about crazing Linda!). As the PIC of a law student, I spend a lot of time doing "law school" things. I often find myself introducing myself as "Kaeli, I'm not in law school" and am regularly lost in conversation, but it's pretty cool to see inside the world of law students that most people don't see.

I'm not sure that I would ever volunteer to be a witness again...think of me as a last resort law students...but at least now I'm ready just in case I'm ever called in for a case!
