Well, in Iowa you can get married, but it's a trick because gay people hardly live in Iowa, much less attractive gay doctors.

TCR is to find onetwo in Chicago, send me one, and drive over to Iowa and get married there to the other.

Yeah, whoops. That's kind of a biggie considering they have a bunch of law schools there.

Well, it's either that or back to the gas station, so here's hoping they give me a job after they finish scoffing.

I'll be 26 when I finish law school, which gives me enough time to pursue another degree (perhaps a Ph.D. in poli sci) afterwards if I don't land a job I like. However to be perfectly honest, if I wasn't doing law I'd probably just become a firefighter somewhere in CA. Great money, reasonable hours, fun work, decent pay... what more do you need?

Cool. Now I know who to call should I spontaneously burst into invisible flames during my exams.
