a jury of your peers

Welcome to jury duty, which at least in Montgomery County, is a dry, boring affair wherein you receive an introduction to the events that lasts for an hour (and involves a video pointing out the horrors of trial by ordeal), and are then left to wait for the rest of the 8 hour day for someone to show up who requests a trial by jury. As of 11:45, no one wanted one of those, and so we are off to carouse and entertain ourselves as we like until 2:00, at which point we are to be back in the waiting room. Waiting.

I think I’ll go find myself a trashy novel, some lunch and then head back to the Jury lounge, which is frightfully short of furniture suitable for lounging.
