Civic Duty

Today I performed my civic duty as stated by the constitution. Yes, I was summoned for jury duty. Luckily, I was called to the downtown courthouse instead of the huge courthouse on the west side. Downtown is much easier for me to get to, you get to leave for lunch, and they deal mostly with civil trials. Here they have the 1 day or 1 jury then you are off the hook for 1 year system. The group I was in was called around 9:30 am. I didn't get picked - thank goodness. After having a lawyer for my father I have seen and heard about more than my fair share of trials. Unfortunately, I was told I was not chosen around noon but had to stay until 3:30pm to see if I would be called to be a juror in traffic court. So boring! I sat in this artificial, white room for the next 3 1/2 hours. The book I recently picked up is just not good. No matter how bored I was I still could not read. I just sat and stared at the ceiling.

Made it home around 4:30, changed into some warm running clothes, and headed back out for an easy 5 mile run. Now that it turns dark at 4:30 I was pretty much alone on the path. It was a bit unnerving where the lights weren't working but otherwise a good run.

I find it hard when we set the clocks back, all of a sudden I find myself running in the dark a lot.

They have jurors in traffic court??? Glad they didn't pick you.

Yay for being free from jury duty for the next year! Don't you hate that it's getting dark sooner? Drives me crazy. I can deal with the cold much better than the dark.

Uggghhhh jury duty. I've been summoned twice and both times I was pregnant and very late in pregnancy. It's was a good enough excuse for them to let me go :P

Just did my jury duty and thankfully did not get picked either. I do have to say that it was boring and I would much rather see a whole day of the grumpiest patients before I do that again. I know where your coming from on the running because the dark is always a little weird at first.
