Justice Friends! Assemble!
Avengers (Marvel Comics) vs Justice Friends (Dexter's Laboratory)
Once again, I've been chosen for jury duty...it's like an annual thing now! It's my punishment for voting!
Except this time, I've been selected for federal court. The past few years, I've been selected for the state court, and I was only chosen to be on a jury one time out of four. However, this is the first time I've been selected for the federal court.
The nice thing about it: I can submit my jury summons information on line! How modern and convenient!
The thing that worries me: The dress code stating that I wear a tie and coat.
What am I? The defendant?
Now, I've often worn pressed dress shirts and pants and shined shoes for the other times at state court. But a tie and jacket in this weather? It's getting way too hot to be wearing that! I hope the A/C works well in the courthouse! Otherwise, I cannot be held liable for being cranky if the heat starts to drive me insane and antisocial and leads me to drink a nice cold alcoholic beverage during lunch break!
In the meantime, I have to find something to do while waiting the long hours at the courthouse. I've been told by a friend to bring something to read. Well, I haven't anything in my possession that I'd like to read at the courthouse; except maybe the huge, heavy book on art and architecture that I'm currently enjoying, flipping through it while I lay on the sofa. I need something light and entertaining. Perhaps a comic book! I haven't read those in years.
And if I'm lucky, one look at my reading material and the judge might excuse me from serving on a jury! Well, one can hope.
