Well, thank goodness you kept the lid on it.

I'm glad the day went well.
LOL, nah, I was actually referring to my occasional tendency to get a bit TOO casual/friendly/joke-y when I'm nervous. Kind of a form of people-pleasing--get them to like me and they will be nice to me. And to some extent it is OK--to the extent they see me as an actual human being, it can help--at least with some adversaries. These guys all represented insurance companies (insurers for the defendants). So it wasn't personal, it was just business, and business doesn't have to be unpleasant. I mentioned how I went to criminal law because I hated doing depositions so much. I think they could relate to that. I don't think they enjoyed the process any more than I did, so anything to make it a bit less painful for all involved was appreciated, I think.
