The Jury's Still Out

It's a momentous day at the Sharpe house. Jay reported for Jury Duty this morning. Bless him, in his own words, he's "waited for this day for decades". I myself, have had Jury Duty 6 times and cannot understand anyone wanting to do it. To me, it's a week long prison sentence. The only upside is the hours of reading I get to catch up on, but it's just so uncomfortable in those horrid chairs and all the chit-chat.

Last night I answered about a hundred questions about the parking deck, the room you sit in, lunch breaks, etc. And then there was a whole deal about what magazines he should take. He decided against taking his new NRA magazine "just in case".

He sent me several texts throughout the day just letting me know that he had just been sitting in that room waiting to get called up, was back from a 2 hour lunch, blah, blah, blah. Then I got the text where he had hit the mother-load. He got called up for a capital murder case. I couldn't tell from the text whether or not he just got called up for selection or if he actually got selected. I'll keep you posted.

As for me, it's pretty much the same ole', same ole'. I worked, I'm home, I'm doing laundry, I have about 3 loads to fold and for the love, all I want to do is watch another episode of Friday Night Lights. So, I think I will. Take it easy ya'll.

Oh my goodness Jill! What if he gets called up for the capital murder case. I can't wait to hear his play by play. He would be perfect for a jury.

I'm with Jay, I have always wanted to have Jury duty. Maybe my day will come and I will hit the mother load too.

Rosemary said that Wes is at jury duty this week too. Ask Jay to keep an eye out for him.

Oh, wow! Yep, keep us posted on this one. I must admit that I HATE being called for Jury Duty. I have one this month too! I've already rescheduled like 4 times now!!!! Just the thought of sitting on all those nasty germy chairs are freaking me out already....okay sighing off about now.

Enjoy the rest of your week!
