Jury Duty

Darling husband got a letter in the mail today.  Dallas County has requested the honor of his presence this month at the Courthouse.  This is the second time in two years that Casey has had jury duty.  And I've never been summoned.  Ever.

I know.  I know.  Some of you are now thinking of just how lucky I am.  I've heard it before.  But I am very politically minded and really feel as if showing up for jury duty is part of my civic duty.  And this experience is being denied to me by the jury duty picking gods.  I haven't been able to experience all that the local government has to offer because I haven't ever received that dreaded letter.  I've never been offered $8 in exchange for my day (and then received a W-2 for it at the end of the year!)  I've never sat on an uncomfortable bench for a number of hours only to be told to go home.  I've never listened to a ridiculously pathetic civil suit from an unemployed woman.  I've never... well you get the idea.  Please jury duty pickers:  

Pick me.  Pick me.  Me me me me me.
