*(Time to Share Tuesdays)

Can you believe it's that time of the week already? Can you believe I remembered?

This week's topic: Trial (or Pre-Trial) Superstitions or Rituals. I know you have them. Lucky shoes, a particular breakfast, prayer to any deity that will listen? What is it? Let's hear it...

Oh, and another thing, help me out with topics for future T.T.S.T.s. Thanks.


  1. I heard my comments weren't working, and maybe that's why I wasn't getting any responses...

    Testing, testing, 1,2,3.

    Ok, you can all comment now!

  2. Ok, I'll get the ball rolling.

    The origin of my ritual is a long story. But, here's what I do. I take my MP3 player into the court bathroom right before my trial starts. (I also do this for hearings and other proceedings that require my attention and energy). I put on my headphones and dance around to a song.

    Now, the song changes over time, but it's got to be something upbeat and confident. I can't think of a good current example right now, but I'll know it when I hear it. Generally, as I'm preparing for trial I listen to the radio a lot and eventually I'll hear a song that makes me feel like I can kick ass. I think "Ok, that'll be my trial song."

    The good thing is, the court bathrooms are kind of gross, so I'm usually the only one who uses it. The only other thing you've got to watch for is not to dance too hard - you don't want to end up with a split suit skirt.

    Anyway, that's my ritual. It gets me pumped up and in the right frame of mind.

    Anyone else? Anyone?
