the greatest thing happened last week. for the first time EVER, i got a summons for jury duty!!!! i was so very excited! it said the case would likely last about 4 weeks. i have ALWAYS wanted to get jury duty. then my mister reminded me about the part where we have a baby now....a baby that requires my body for nourishment. my heart sank. i tried to bargain, "but i'm the PERFECT jurror! they would choose me in a split second!! uncle sam needs me!!" the mister picked up the summons, looked it over and replied "see, they've even got a box to check to say you're exempt because you're breastfeeding. uncle sam doesn't want you right now."
so my friends, i hope you won't mind that i had to, at least for now, choose my parenting responsibilities over the civil ones.
but hey, why don't YOU tell me YOUR jury duty story, and i'll live vicariously. hooray!
the good news is, i can keep working on my personal political stances even with a baby on my boob.
