Tall is the new fat
Today I gave my first closing. True, it was in a courtroom with a jury box of law students, but it was still cool. My professors told me that I done did good. One of them told me that because I am tall (which, even in 1 1/2 inch heels, I was maxing out at 5'5", so I think "tall" is a new euphemism for "fat") I need to make bigger hand gestures and move around the room more. But my flow and eye contact were right on- so that's good. I'm not as crappy a speaker as I thought.
