I can't talk about it.
Let me clarify:
I can't talk about specifics. I can't talk about the case.
I can, however, talk about the experience.
I've never been deposed before. Today, I was. Nearly seven hours (with breaks) of questioning. Tedious. Nerve wracking. Why? First, there's the mind numbing detail to be discussed. Second, there's the questions, especially when you know they're trying to get you to say or characterize something in a particular way to help their case.
You have to be honest—sworn testimony and all— so you start worrying that maybe you misremembered something and it'll come back to haunt you.
It ended just before 5, but it's not over. I probably have to appear at the hearing.
Oh, and then I have to do another deposition for a client of mine.
I can't talk about it, but I don't like it.
I could, however, go have a couple of stiff drinks.
