Jury duty

Ah, yes, that civic duty that most people would prefer to get out of then participate in. I'm sure if I was a defendent though, I would want that jury. Anyway, I did my civic duty on Monday and went to jury duty. I didn't really want to get chosen to be in the jury, but knew if I was chosen that I would serve whether I wanted to or not...the beauty of a duty. I was actually fascinated by the whole experience.
Now, I am called for jury duty about every two years like clockwork. It is almost as though the random picking of numbers, randomly waits until the two years is over and like clockwork randomly picks my number again. (If my number was the lotto I would be so excited, but it's not.) Anyway, this was the first time I actually went into the courtroom and sat through the interrogation (in a good way) process to chose a jury. Amazing insight into how the prosecution and defense work. Still very glad I wasn't chosen but glad I got to see how it worked. Honestly the way things are going, I have a feeling in two years, I will randomly be called again, but have a feeling that I will have to actually serve on a jury this time. Being summoned 5 or so times and not having to actually be on a jury seems a bit like pushing my luck. Ah well... all is well that ends well!

"all's well that ends well"

That would be a good name for a play.
