I had jury duty today and got there in plenty of time. I even felt fine when I sat on a panel but was dismissed back to the jury pool when the anticipated length of the trial overlapped my scheduled Cancun trip in a couple weeks.
Let's cut to the chase and not be too crude here. I wasn't feeling so good when we were released at 11:30 for lunch and things only got worse from there. I think I got food poisoning or stomach flu. The ladies running the jury room showed a high level of compassion when they let me go home at 2:30.
Every muscle in my body aches. Violent convulsions have made me feel as weak and frail as if I were 85 years old.
I want this to be over. I hurt physically. And that's why I haven't been blogging today.
