    Well, It's The Thought That Counts

    It wasn't from the Wonderful Ex, and it wasn't a call ... But let me bore you, anyway. I'm a lawyer in a town some 2 hours away from Cape Town (South Africa). I don't want to be a corporate lawyer. Here, my clients are farmers, farmworkers, small businesses, retired people, etc...

    I Guess Thats What You'd Call Him.
