Dear Jury Duty,


     Please be nice to me. After all, I am taking a day off of work to come and hang out with you. Truthfully, I wouldn't be upset if you told me I could leave as soon as I got there. At least it would give me a day off, even though we only had an inservice day at work today.

     As much as I appreciate the day off of work, though, you are kinda boring. I mean I can't even bring in coffee to drink while we chill. And, since my Kindle is electronic, I'm supposed to keep that at home, too. But, I'm not too upset about that because it kind of forces me to read one of the seven million unread books I have on my bookshelf.

     I'll be honest, today is going to be tough. I don't think I've gone more than a few hours without my phone lately. It's kinda part of me. Who knows, maybe I'll like it. Maybe I'll thank you later for introducing me back into the world of being social with other human beings. Well, not like I don't do that with a bunch of kiddies on the daily, but still. It's going to be different.

    Well, I guess I'm here. Just one request, please don't keep me too late. I haven't really seen my husband over the last 3 days, so it would be nice to spend some time with him. Ok, let's be honest. I just want to get out in time to go to Happy Hour. Sorry.



  1. Pretty much sounds like a letter I would write. I'm trying to give myself a few days of not drinking though so I may skip happy hour today.

  2. No phones in jury duty huh? That stinks! I hope you have a good book!

  3. Ahhhhhh! Good luck girl! When I got selected for jury duty I took a real book (yuck) checked in, sat for all of about 2 minutes and then was excused because the case had gone into negotiations. I got SO SO LUCKY. Hope you do too!!!

  4. Hahaha I think I would have all of these feelings as well! Good luck!

  5. I'm so glad I've never had to do this! (KNOCK ON WOOD!)
