I had jury duty today. The recorded message I heard last night said I should plan on being at the courthouse until 5. Like the other 200+ people called, I filed into a room, listened to a judge thank us for keeping freedom alive, watched a video about what might happen if I was chosen...and then I waited. Three different court folks came and called out names, and soon only ~30 of us remained. Then the woman in charge of jury selection came in and read off a roll call -- and we were dismissed. At 10:30 am -- woot! So I did my duty, crocheted quite a bit, fixed my phone, and then got to come home and get on with a day I didn't expect to have. I love surprises like that.
