As many of his colleagues balked at his seemingly inane choice, he started to wonder if he might be a little crazy; if it was foolish to give up at successful law career. But wouldn’t it be more foolish to live a life of drudgery and unhappiness? Jim realized he had to make a move, but wasn’t thrilled about a bare-bones, living-in-a-van, surfer kind of life. He did have a taste for great scotch, after all.
