jury duty

I've nearly made it through the day. Hopefully just a precious few more hours until I am released from my civic duty and allowed to make my way home. Hopefully for a nap. Geesgh - there is nothing more soul-sucking than sitting in a room waiting to be called into a Jury Pool.

But I was called.

I was one of the first batch requested. We were sent upstairs and led into a courtroom. The judge announced that it was a criminal case, and could last up to a week or more. She requested than anyone who would not be able to "sit" for the trial that long stand up and state their case. For me, it's my back.

As much as sitting on a jury interests me, I cannot sit down for more than maybe twenty minutes at a time without having to stretch, get up, walk around, etc. I was excused. Hopefully, I'll ride out the rest of the day in peace.
