I had graduated from UCLA and was working for an accounting firm. I had passed the certified public accounting exam but still needed an additional seven or eight months of on-the-job training to meet the experience required to become an official CPA. I also had applied to law school on the East Coast and had been accepted. Life felt like it was on track, professionally, for a career in tax law.
My personal life was a different matter. I had been engaged to a woman in college, but we discovered we just didn’t see eye to eye on the things that mattered most. For one, she wanted to become a stay-at-home wife immediately after we got married. (I couldn’t afford that.) We broke it off.
So I began dating a few different women whose company I enjoyed, but I didn’t see any of those relationships going the distance, either. I would see one woman on Friday night and the other on Saturday night and then I might switch the days around the next weekend. Back then, a guy generally dated on the weekends only.
