I could only wish.....

As a dedicated Law and Order fan, I've become obsessed with watching my mail box for something that tells me that my services are required to serve on a JURY. For me, it would be like winning the lotto. How does a 35 year old woman NEVER get called for Jury Duty in her entire life.

Is it possible to walk into the courtroom and just volunteer?

Because he could care less about this responsibility, Dan has been picked for Jury Duty approx. 7 times in his life!! SEVEN!! You would think he could "let me take his place" - but, no.

He once AGAIN will have Jury Duty the week of September 6, 2010. I at least talked him into letting me fill out his paperwork, just so I felt important.

And yes, I will take this opportunity to mention that I think it ridiculous that they print his full name at the top of the paper, and then the first question they ask is - First Name, Last Name, Middle Initial.........

Hey ...I'm older than you and NEVER gotten a THING about jury duty???? They must have a secret list of people who WANT to do it, and make sure they don't choose any of those people! ;)

Whew! I thought I was the only one who actually WANTED jury duty! I always hear people complain about having to do it and I think something must be wrong with me! Glad to know I'm not alone. =)
I can't believe Dan's had it 7 times!!
