Well, you guys, it has finally happened. For the first time in my 32 years, I’ve been summoned to Jury Duty.
And so this girl with the not-so-traditional job/office/daily business wear … had to actually wake up to an alarm today, shower (before 7pm – what?!), put on something other than yoga pants, and hit the road before 8am so I could report to Jury Duty by 8:30am.
I think in any other normal career I would have been okay to get called to Jury Duty. I would have been all “YAY! A DAY OFF WORK!!” But I love what I do and would rather have a normal day in the office any day! Plus, running your own business doesn’t really allow for sick days, let alone a full day spent sitting in a courthouse when I should be wrapping up our final edits to get out to clients before we head out of town in a few days.
But instead of getting too irritated about performing my civic duty – I’m going to be thankful we live in a democratic society where people are allowed fair trials. Yes? (I’m trying reaaaaaally hard to look on the bright side here, people.) And I’m going to break into the books I bought for our trip a few days early – because I will need something to pass the time! So there’s that! Yay good books!
Here’s hoping it is a quick day!!! Happy Wednesday, friends!! If you need me I’ll be munching on vending machine food and twiddling my thumbs all day.
