Something To Think About

I've been summoned. To jury duty. I am not excited. Not in the least. The only bright side I can find, is the $6 I will receive for my efforts. That's more than I make all year.

I've looked over my juror information. I'm not allowed to bring "mace, tasers, weapons, tools or sharp objects (including knitting needles, crochet hooks and knives)." Um, really? Because normally, I carry a knife and a taser on my person.

I've thought about googling what I need to do to be in contempt of court. Why? Then I could sit somewhere and read without having to make dinner for anyone. I might even call it a jail-cation.

My New Year's resolution has been made. I'm going to betroth my kids. Honestly. I looked around at everyone a few weeks ago, and I realized that Fosters are hard to handle. Maybe even impossible. So, pre-arranged marriages might be the only way to go.

***

I bought myself some skinny jeans. I can't decide if someone over the age of 40 is even allowed to wear skinny jeans. When I put them on, I have an image in my head of shoving a turkey into a denim jacket. A 40 year old turkey.

2 nights ago, it occurred to me that if our house was on fire, I would grab my Kindle first. I'm sure I would scream for Todd to get the kids, but then I would grab my can't-ever-live-without book reader. You can live without a house, but you can not live without books. Amen.

Your $6.00 will only cover the parking, unless you take the bus downtown;(. I highly recommend the bus! Let them worry about driving in rush hour traffic and its free with your jury summons.
