House Arrest for Fun and Profit
By Angie Brennan

Several of my friends have recently hosted kitchen product parties ("The Pampered Chef"), but I'm not interested in selling cookware. After all, it's best if you can work up some enthusiasm for the product you're pushing, and since I have an aversion to cooking I can't see myself become giddy over, say, a scone storage unit.

But for a sales party idea, I needn't look further than across the kitchen table--at my husband, that is. He's a lawyer; why not tailor a show to sell his services?

I'd call it "The Pampered Plaintiff" Party. The invitations could look like little arrest warrants. After the initial shock, how the invitees will chuckle when they realize they won't have to post bail after all! Of course, those with a dim view of sales parties may prefer jail time.

I could serve Subpoena Sandwiches and Triple Lawyer Chocolate Cake. And we mustn't forget those rollicking "ice breaker" games. Here's one to get things started: it's called "Sue Who?" Going around the room, each player answers the question "If you could slap a lawsuit on anyone in the world, who would it be?" Things could get pretty exciting if someone's dream defendant were in that very room!

Next, the door prize. I can see it now...

Me: Okay, ladies--look under your chairs and find the paper taped underneath.

Jane: A mock legal invoice! Oooh--look at that total. Impressive.

Me: Right. Check your invoices; whoever has the lowest bill wins.

Linda: (staring at her invoice) No way--$95 for one phone call?!

Tiffany: They charged me, like, $4.75 for making two copies.

Me: Congratulations, Tiffany; you're our winner.

Tiffany: (squealing) Awesome! One free Misappropriation of Intellectual Property case! I, like, totally needed this!

Me: You do have some intellectual property, right?

Tiffany: Huh?

Me: Nothing. More cake, anyone?

Yes, it could be an interesting party. Of course, if I were to do something like that, I'd probably never get invited to another--

Excuse me; gotta run. I need to start preparing some warrants.
