There's A Draft In Here

Beer tip of the day. A few pints of a nice hoppy IPA followed by spoonfuls of maple pretzel peanut butter, Cheez-Its, and gulps of water may have the following side effects: sleeplessness, headache, nausea, vomiting, and disrupted sleep for other members of the household.

On to more pressing matters, specifically an "Official Summons For Juror Service".

Jury duty equals a day full of anxiety and stress for the following reasons:

  • Courthouses are typically located in areas with limited parking
  • It always seems to fall on a day when there is something important going on at work
  • You are forced to sit for hours in a room full of strangers
  • Raising your hand when you have to pee is embarrassing
  • The worry that the sushi/chicken salad/blue cheese dressing/yogurt you ate the night before was actually a day past its expiration and will be letting you know that very soon
**This post is a draft from a few months back that I never got around to finishing. So here is the update.

Jury duty was easy peasy. A big hint that early dismissal was imminent happened when the clerk informed the jury pool that no judge was available for the standard jury duty pep talk. Shortly thereafter, just as I was settling in to my second episode of Flea Market Flip, we were sent home. It was 9:30am. After surprising my sweetie at her office building and grabbing breakfast, I headed back home where I immediately signed into work. Like an ass. Who does that? Who doesn't take advantage of a free day off from work? I should have headed back to the court house and had myself arrested for being stupid.
