Civic Duty...

I spent the day at jury duty - for the first time in my life. I have been summoned every year for as long as I can remember but I was either a student or working... so I have always gotten out of it. I literally had no idea what to expect... seriously I even called my Mom this morning to consult on what to wear - I know - I am that ridiculous! But the most experience I had with jury duty was watching Carrie Bradshaw serve her civic duty on SATC... when she encountered the man that would bring a different piece if fruit each day in his briefcase - no ordinary fruit but fruits like a coconut and a mango - so I knew I would be in a treat for the people watching aspect... there were some positive things to come out of jury duty... I caught up on every one's blogs (I luckily brought my laptop) and also got a two hour break in which I got to a chance to catch up with my good friend, KO... so the day wasn't a total loss :-)


  1. Cute post! I've never served either... been summoned twice, but moving out-of-state got me out of it. Cute Halloween pics too!


  2. How funny, hope you got your outfit together OK.

  3. I have my 1st NYC jury duty soon - I will also be channeling Miss Bradshaw ;)


  4. Jury duty is always interesting. In fact my very first blog post was about jury duty.
