Blog Post #14 – January 13th, 2020.
I know I promised an update of how Judge Gargotta is doing, but I got to court late and I was not able to talk to him before court started. This time of year in San Antonio everyone is ill from allergies and they got him today. He even went home early due to illness which is very unusual for him.. I will try again tomorrow to see if I can talk to him. I was able to get some inside intel that he packed his lunch today. This is very unusual for him he never packs a lunch.
It also makes me think about our clients who do not have sick leave. If he worked at a place that had no time off this illness could completely derail the process. If he needs medical attention we did not really give him a lot of leeway in that area either.
I managed to remember my lunch today. Tomorrow I have hearings at 11, 2 and 3. I am debating whether I should pack a lunch and go knock on Judge Gagotta’s door to see if I can borrow his microwave or just walk over to the mall and eat at the food court. I still have $9.00 in my lunch budget. I will see how the weather looks in the morning. Now that I made it to the middle of the month maybe I can divert some of my grocery money to lunch tomorrow. I am still cautious about spending money since one never knows what is on the horizon.
