Jury Duty

Today, I report for jury duty. I called the phone number last night and they said that people that were supposed to report to High Point are excused, but those of us going to Greensboro still need to report.

I've got my iPod, a copy of Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal, and my phone (so that I can check in with work from time to time). I wonder if I'll have to leave my phone in the car -- drjekyll reminded me that a lot of courthouses don't take too kindly to cell phones, especially those that have cameras. We'll see what happens. I'm leaving my pocketknife and all my change on the night stand, in order to make it easier to get through the metal detector at the courthouse. It probably won't matter -- I tend to set off metal detectors simply by looking at them.

It should prove to be an interesting day.
