Early Birds...


Early this week, as I sat to hear case management, I noticed that both counsel in one case came about 30 minutes before 9am (which is the time Court starts to sit). As they entered and sat before me, I said:
Wow! 8.30am! You guys are really early…
They replied that it’s good to be early with hopes that more things can be settled that day.
So I said:
Yup… Early bird catches the worm
They nodded in agreement...
Just for the heck of it, I continued:
But you do know it is suicidal for worms to come out early right?
That last bit caught them by surprise. It took them about 5 seconds to digest and then they started laughing…
Maybe they were silently hoping they’d be the birds instead of the worms for that day…
