My parents are worth a decent chunk of change. To their defense they paid for my law school tuition and pretty much all of my expenses during law school including bar expenses and bar trip. For that I’ll always be thankful.

But we had a graduation party at their house last weekend and they gave me a check for $5k. I thought for the amount of money they have and what they gave my sisters, that was somewhat disappointing. For instance, my grandparents who are worth 1/10 what my parents are worth also gave me $5k.

I would never bring it up to them but I was expecting there to be another “0” after the 5. Anyone ever have something happen like that? My parents NW is in the $10-15 million range.

Yeah I have a somewhat similar story that I can share and you can probably relate to. On the day of my law school graduation party (from the Georgetown Law Center) my parents hosted a big bash at our home in Church Falls. It was well-planned with good decor, appropriate flower arrangements, and a tasteful mixture of digital and live music, the latter courtesy of a six-piece band that my uncle Ronnie played in. Everyone was enjoying their canapes and Uncle Ronnie was between sets so he walked off the stage we'd set up in the formal garden and gestured for me to join him behind it in a narrow corridor-like area bordered by the wooden frame of the stage on the one side and our carefully trimmed hedge row on the other.

"What's going on Uncle Ronnie?" He looked at me with these wide eyes, as big as saucers, and I remember how he almost shrieked his response: "The law will consume you!" I was startled and stumbled forward. He caught me in his arms and that's when I felt his bulging erection. "Ronnie, what the fuck" I mumbled as he began to play with his belt. "Trust me kid, this is for your own good." Before I knew it his thick red prick was popping up like a candy stick at a Christmas Eve Kid's Table. "Ronnie, get the fuck out of here, I ain't gay." He responded gravel grain in the voice, like he'd become possessed: "This ain't gay" and grabbed me by the nape of the neck, throwing me hard onto the ground.

"This ain't gay at all. This is the law. You want to be a lawyer? You're going to have to *feel* the burn of the law. Feel it in you." I could feel him passing through the barrier of my sphincter, pushing into my anus. It hurt like hell and I begged him to stop, tears in my eyes. "Ronnie, for the love of Dworkin, cut it--" He slapped me fierce with his right hand, a big monkey's paw of a hand honed in the factory he'd worked in for more than thirty years. "Cut the commentary. You want to feel a document diligence session? You want to know what it's like to turn a brief? You want to understand with searing integrity the nature of the assignment? Feel this."

He ejaculated in me at that moment, hard. I doubled over, felt it spread through me like some all-consuming warmth, emanating outward from my core. I began, in spite of myself and my reservations, to smile. "Ronnie, that -- that feels pretty good. That feels great." "You're right, it does. That's the reward of the law. After it's all said and done, after everything is through, you'll feel that, night after night on your way home in a conversationless black car at all odd hours. That's the essence of the game my friend. I just gave it to you, there in your ass. Now clean yourself up, the next song is about to start."

He left me there lying on the ground, staring up into the infinitude of space hanging above us on that summer green lawn in my twenty-fifth year of life on this Earth, all of it a piece of some incomprehensible puzzle that, in that moment, suddenly became a bit more knowable. I headed toward the bushes to grab my trousers and get back to the party.

My parents came to the city I lived in for my graduation and took the family out to dinner and we had a great time.

Better than any sum of $$$, which I surely would not remember spending or saving now.

I’ve seen it. They usually get the sense that being in the law will allow them to “do something in the world.” They last a year or three and then flame out, often when their trust money kicks in a/o they get the invitation to go work for one of dad’s “friends” after having “proven themselves” at a law firm. They tend to pop up especially at the big international firms eg Baker, White & Case.

My parents have me a bottle of Dom and a nice pen. That bubbly lasted about 12 minutes, then we hit the booze. Good times. And I still have that pen somewhere.
