I wanna be the very best, like no one ever was
I had jury duty today for the first time in my life. Well, to be fair, I've been called 3 times, but I always deferred it due to school. Multnomah County got so tired of it, they actually called me and asked, "When would be a good day for you to serve in the next month?" Ahahaha...
So I went in and waited around for a few hours (coincidentally, Jamie had jury duty the same day in the same court! It was nice to have someone to make fun of the instructional video with), then got called to a courtroom and was chosen as 1 of 6 people to serve from the 20 potential jurors in the room. Though it meant that everyone else got to leave before noon with their sentence filled, a part of me was happy to get the full experience and know how these things really work. Life experience is vital for writing and illustrating comics well!
Also, it felt like anyone with any bit of crazy got asked to leave, so I must be hiding mine well these days. :P Yippee!
ALSO, someone there had the last name Brumbello (sp?). It made me so happy.
