I liked the grueling task of preparing beforehand and participating in a courtroom battle over accounting principles. There was the challenge to react and respond to the many innuendoes and leading questions asked by the opposing attorney. Probably the stress was not worth the daily fees I received, but I kind of enjoyed it. I sometimes imagined the opposing attorney to be a black-clad medieval knight racing towards me on horse-back with a long, sharp lance. I always toppled the vicious knight in my daydreams. Though not always in court.
