I need to draft my notice letter. I really don’t want to tell them that I’m taking the bar again, so I need to figure out another excuse. Here’s the list I have so far:
1) I have an inoperable brain tumor.
2) I’m pregnant. (But I’m not about to tempt fate by using that one since I really don’t want a baby for a looooong time!)
3) I’ve contracted tuberculosis from that TB guy Andrew Speaker and must go into federal quarantine.
4) I cite the catchphrase “circumstances beyond my control” and refuse to elaborate if questioned.
Obviously I didn’t get very far on that list. I suppose I’ll keep the letter short and sweet, and hope they don’t question me about the bar. They still haven’t asked me if I’m going to retake it. I don’t know what I’ll do or say if they ask me if I’m leaving early to take the bar.
