My jury duty is officially completed. I did not get chosen for the jury, so I basically just got a free day off work and had to do a bunch of sitting around. Not so bad really. I actually got to read quite a bit of the book that I started way back in July. Now I’m to the point of no return where I can’t put the book down until I finish it. I almost wish I would have been chosen just so I could sit around and read during the breaks.
The best part of my day was lunch. We ended up getting almost an hour and a half for lunch and it was an absolutely beautiful day outside. I grabbed a quick lunch accross the street from the courthouse and then spent the rest of the time listening to Pearl Jam and walking around downtown. I was really upset that I didn’t have my camera with me because it would have been the perfect opportunity to take some great pictures. I snapped a few with my cameraphone, but they’re not even close to what I could have taken with a real camera.
The trickiest part of the day was navigating my way back home. I absolutely hate driving downtown because I always manage to get lost. I do fine getting where I need to be, but almost always get turned around when I try to leave. One way streets are not my friends. I didn’t get home exactly the way I had planned, but I did make it without getting totally lost.
It really wasn’t a bad experience, but I’m glad that I have another three years before I have to do it again.
