Socratic Method

Had my first classic law school experience today. First class of the day, Contracts. "What happened in Hamer v. Sidway, Miss Brown?" Um. I swear he just said my name. "Well, the uncle promised, well, there was a contract if the nephew would abstain from drinking, if, when he was 21, and then, what happened was the uncle..." Am I saying words? "Were the nephew and uncle the parties in this case? Who is Hamer?" Is he speaking Russian? "Well, no. There was, it was transferred, the executor, and the debt, it's assigned but no, the uncle, and he died..."

Somehow it ended. Not sure what was really asked or said, but I'm still alive. So, that's good.
