One of the reasons I haven’t written in awhile is that I have been on jury duty for the past three weeks. We started on January 31st, in the same courthouse I went to numerous times for my divorce…that alone was challenging. We sat in a room for four days, thirty of us, waiting for the lawyers to decide on the members of the jury. It’s a civil case and they needed only 6 jurors and 2 alternates. I’ve heard that the case is pretty much decided by the make-up of the jury.
We listened to the evidence for two weeks and just started deliberating this past Friday afternoon. All I can say is all hell broke loose in the jury room. And that’s all I can say.
This has been a very intense and fascinating experience AND I’m so ready to be finished.
An update will come when it’s all over. All I can say is thank God I have swing dancing. I live for my classes and workshops. It’s given me so much pleasure and so much fun. I’m thinking about learning the tango next!
