Grandma gives a pep talk

Good news, I think? So according to my super-duper lawyer Joshua, I am totally in the right about this whole "no heat" debacle in my crapartment. So I just sent an e-mail to my landlord letting him know that I plan to take him to small claims court if he doesn't cough up the rent he owes me! Quite frankly, sending off my angry missive was terrifying. I'm not really into having conflict (with people outside the family of course). Mr. Arnold can attest that the women in my family have no problem engaging in mortal combat over something trivial like coffee filters.

The person who really sold me on this whole small claims court thing, besides my new BFF Joshua the lawyer is my grandma! She got me all fired up! "Small claims court is easy! He's a lazy person! He doesn't care about you! Our family are fighters!" But now that I can't take it back I might need to call my Grandma again for a little pep talk. I mean seriously, am I the kind of person who can defend myself in court? People are always telling me I should be a lawyer because I'm ... uh persuasive, (Grandma says "intimidating", but c'mon I'm only 5'4" Anyways it's too late now, I sent off the e-mail and we all know you can't take that back, so I'll just have to stick it out and see what happens... Hoping for the best! And if I do have to go to court, you are all welcome to sit in the audience!
