I've been summoned to jury duty. Tomorrow morning, at 8:30, I have to show up at 361 University Ave., Room 167. I'm told it's my civic duty.
I know where I'm supposed to be at 8:30 tomorrow, but not much else. I have no idea when I'll be dismissed tomorrow, or whether I'll have to be there all week. The letter I got says I'll be there for one week minimum, but I'm hoping that's an empty threat.
I'm not yet a juror. I'll be a member of a "jury panel", a large group of people from whom one or more juries will be selected. I'm a potential juror who hopefully won't be chosen as a juror. I'm too busy to think about that.
I promise to blog about this process in great detail, because at least one of you might be curious. I'm going in completely cold. This should be interesting...
