So today I had my first adventures at court. No. It's not what you think. Wait. Maybe it is.
I was called for Jury Duty. Which by the way is proving to be the highlight of my week.
Um. Why do people detest this adventure? I mean, I felt like I was about to enter into my new favorite show, "Suits". Seriously, I kept trying not to cheese all day. I had to keep reminding myself that I wasn't "on set".
All to say, I only got sworn in today. I can't mention any details about the case, as you know, that would be illegal.
But what I can tell you is that I learned to never wear a belt to the Courthouse. Ugh. Especially when going through security scanners 4 to 5 times throughout the day.
The line of the day:
"You can go ahead of me, I need to take my belt off." By yours truly.
Just think about that line.
Now picture me saying that to a young man in his finest thugwear who was already eyeballing my physique before I walked up to the security.
I mean, did I really say that out loud? Yes I did. Oddly enough, it seemed to catch us both off guard. I'm pretty sure I made a thug blush today.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how you make a day in court official.
When going to the airport and courthouse, leave your belts and hi-top Converse sneakers behind.
