Making a long story short

Last Thursday, my husband and I returned from roughly a week and a half in Niagara Falls, Toronto, the Thousand Islands, and Montreal.

Yesterday, I was selected to serve as a juror for a trial.

I'm still too tired to talk about the vacation, and I'm forbidden by law to talk about the trial, so that's the whole post.  Travel tales and photos to follow, once I'm awake.  :)  Goodnight.

Easy way to get out of jury duty.
Wear some farmer-type clothes, squint while you speak and announce, in a loud British accent: "I hope he's not a darkie! I can't stand them immigrant types!"
You'll be outta there in no time flat.

Another wiseguy heard from. :)

I've done my patriotic duty and served on a jury. It was an interesting and enlightening experience, but not one that I'd like to repeat too often. :)

Important information for potential jurors: Even in New York City, one can't assume that kosher food will be provided to jurors, so make sure that you bring enough food and snacks to last you well into the evening. Our trial lasted until roughly 10:15 PM, and we weren't allowed to leave the jury room the entire time, except to go back into the courtroom or to go the ladies' or mens' room. Also, jurors and potential jurors must leave all phones and/or cameras, or any device (such as an iPad) that includes a camera, with a security guard in the lobby.
