I do have jury duty! I have to report tom'w a.m. I think I will enjoy the experience. I will not reveal the case so don't even ask. Save your thumbscrews and your electric prods...I'm not telling. I hope I get chosen but I also hope I don't have to eat my words because I have a bad habit of falling asleep when I sit still for too long. I will have to move around or I will start to nod. How embarrasing will that be, there is nowhere to hide! I'm getting nervous now. I'm going to sleep early. Just reading a little "John Adams" by David McCullough. I'm loving it! I'll get up bright and early with the husband tom'w a.m. and off to the courthouse. I'll report in later. Have a great and lawful day.
I will be working on my blog every day. I hope to add a word of the day which will be a definition, a new one every day, which I hope will help with the literacy of my readers. LOL Also, I will have a book review as I read them, which can also be found on Librarything. My name there is mmignano11. What a great website that is! If you haven't been there, take a look, especially if you like to read. It is a whole new world. I would like to provide a picture as a writing prompt both for myself and for my readers. Anything newsworthy and unusual, out of the norm, something to incite discussion. Probably focusing on the world of reading and writing. Keep checking in!
Today I have to call and find out if I have jury duty. This is the first time that I am able to go if I am actually called. I take the responsibility seriously and I wish that I would be called for a case that has some import, a criminal case, any type of case, really, but something that requires me to come to some kind of decision about the participants moral character. I feel that I can be impartial, and that I would be valuable to the system. I am intelligent, well-read and fair. At least that is what I have always claimed to be, and having the opportunity to use those resources would be cool. I would like to see the process also. I have known only one person who attended a case that seemed somewhat interesting, but she was protective of the information, which was admirable I guess. After all, jurors are not supposed to discuss the cases they are on, and she didn't, not until after the fact and then she was very vague about details. So, in about two minutes I contact them to find out if I go today. I will have to scramble to be ready. Does anybody have any jury duty stories?
