After a long holiday weekend in which I did not make enough money, I got to spend 2 more days sitting in a stuffy courtroom awaiting the dreaded jury duty. I won’t get into details of the case, nor anything such, but it was a long, boring ordeal which I do not care to suffer through again.
I’m still suffering the effects of this whatever the hell it is I got so I’ve spent the last two days living on cough drops so I don’t disturb the proceedings. Coupled with the fatigue it made for two very long days. Too make matters worse, as I was sitting at the bus stop on Monday, a tiny piece of dirt flew up and hit me directly in the eye. I’m alright but my eye is itchy as hell and waters up. Darwin keeps throwing them and I keep hitting them back.
The upside is I was dismissed at the end of the second day. Had I been picked I was looking at spending most of December in said courtroom listening to lawyers pad their hours.
As it is, I am way behind on everything. Finances which were already in ruin are now in more ruin. It’s going to take me a few days to sort out where I stand and if I still have a place to live. All the while dealing with the nagging cough and scratchy eye. Yup, lots to be thankful for this holiday season. Be back in a day or two.
