Every defender should have a hobby. It should ideally be something as far removed from the practice of law as possible — something that takes the mind off the practice. I’m fascinated by the things that other people find fun. Here are some of the things that my fellow Houston defenders do:
Jump out of airplanes;
Play croquet (“the serious stuff, not the rinky dink stuff you get at a sporting goods store”);
Play conga drums;
Cowboy mounted shooting (I think it has something to do with horses);
Play harmonica; and
Collect baseball cards.
Here’s a picture of me practicing my chief hobby:
