I have jury duty tomorrow. Only the second time in my whole life I have ever been called. The first time was a few years ago, when Danielle was still a wee little nursling. I got a postponement because I couldn't leave her, she didn't take a bottle and she was too young for anyone else to watch for any length of time. This time, they didn't accept my being the sole caregiver of a child as an excuse. They offered me use of the court child care facilities. UMMM NO! I don't put her into daycare that I researched and chose myself, why the hell would I put her into anything run by a court??? Oh well, I guess I should look at it as an opportunity to read uninterrupted by toddler demands for a day. My brother just sent me a box of Dean Koontz books, so I shall take one or two along, and see how much I get done.
My brother, ever the comedian, told me if I get chosen from the pool to tell the judge that the baby told me that everyone is guilty ;) Think that would get me out of a trial??
