Jury Duty

For the last 2 days I've spent the majority of it sitting in an uncomfortable chair locked away in a room somewhere in the bowels of the Providence judiciary. I was not alone - no indeed there were about 60 other people sharing the same fate as myself. For 2 days we sat there - some talking with one another, others starting blindly across the room oblivious to the world around them. Luckily I thought ahead and brought a very long book. In the end I was not chosen for a trial. My obligations to the state are now complete for the a minimum of 3 years. But with my luck April 2012 I'll be sitting in that room yet again.
