conversation between me and a schoolmate:
him: what are the issues in the moot court brief.
me: oh gosh. a lot of them are civil procedure questions. this one i'm writing now...it's about federal common law...erie doctrine crap. erie doctrine crap that i never understood. i never got civpro. i tanked it, i sucked at it.
him: at about the point i got to talking about erie ...hi!
i finished my rant, looked up, and figured out who my friend was waving to. it was my civ pro professor from last year. who just heard me bitching loudly and clearly about erie. and about what crap it was. and talking about the fact that i just didn't get it.
