You’re obese, you’re 70, and you’re a barrister!

Overheard from the corridor on my way to my room today.

Not, I think a direct declaration, but rather a recounting or more likely foreshadowing of a supposed killer point in cross examination. What obvious risk amongst many is the hapless chap (almost certainly a chap) charged with knowing?

The sadder thing is that, providing I’m otherwise spared, it’s not difficult to foresee such a future for myself.

It’s all a bit dispiriting, not to say an exhausting prospect.
