Why I’m scared of crocodiles!

I want to tell you something that not many people know about me. And it’s to do with these things. I grew up in Africa.

By the shores of Lake Victoria and Lake Tangyanika.

There were not many swimming pools. And what we used to do is go swimming in the Lake. In Lake Tangyanika there were crocodiles. So what would happen is that I would go swimming wondering if we would meet one of these.

So to this day when I go into a swimming pool I still check it out for crocodiles, because they do scare me. But it does sort of prepare you a bit for life! When you go through divorce proceedings you do meet people who can be quite vicious and who need to be stood up to. So that’s what I suppose may have helped me in becoming the lawyer that I am.
