Today I've got Jury Duty. WHAT!!! I'm cool with it; I just don't want it to intrude too much on my life right now. I've got enough going on these days. I could have postponed it, but I figured that I should go ahead and deal with it. I figured it could be really interesting.
I go in and eventually get assigned to a case, a "high-profile case", but I get dismissed. I was so nervous before I was interviewed by the judge that I thought I was going faint or something. I told him that my mother had recently passed away and I had plans to go back East for the holidays and he excused me from the case.
