I came home today to find an unnervingly-official-looking letter in the mailbox, stern bold print on blue paper showing through the window of the envelope. I opened it up right on the step, and found a jury summons inside. How cool is that?! The wording of it entertains me..."at the hour of 9:15 o'clock in the fore noon" "Given under my hand, the nth day of March..." etc. etc.
Sadly, I have to request an exemption, coz if I were selected, it would be for 3-4 weeks, and we just can't afford for me to miss that much work. If it were a shorter time frame, though, I'd jump at the chance. I mean, who knows if I'd even make it through selection, but even to see that in action would be neat!
