Jury Duty

After 41 years in this sweet city, I received my first summons.  A part of me truly is crazy-hyper-strongly pro-civic duty, I live in a democracy and this responsibility is part of the privileges we have as citizens of our great country, etc, etc.  A more current, bigger part of me is the mother of 5 kids, ages 7 and under, who instantaneously became annoyed when I only looked at the envelope and was already figuring out the logistics necessary to make this work. Seriously.  I opened the mailbox, did the quick flip of the mail to see if anything interesting (ice cream coupon?) was there, saw the envelope, and within a microsecond launched into irritable planning mode.

Attitude adjustment necessary.
