Why I Could Never be an Attorney

My Fair Lady read a description to me just now from her Estates & Trusts book. To say it gave me a headache would be a mockery of my pain, but the thing that got me was how frequently the same word, "Decedents," was used. Try every third word. Here's another word for you aspiring lawyers out there: Repetitive.

The punchline is that apparently the treatise she read to me was a math problem. Not one time did I hear so much as a number, yet I was expected to keep pace with the rapid-fire arithmeticery in spite of the fact there were no numerical values anywhere. When I asked her about this, she replied "Oh, it's a word problem!"
