Things I learned while serving on a jury

1. My fellow citizens have a lot of respect for jury duty. In fact, they have so much respect for it that they didn’t so much as giggle at the Troy McClure-esque “Welcome to Jury Duty” video we were all forced to watch. I don’t have as much respect. Or maybe I was the only one watching the video.

I previously blogged about a weird trip* I took during a sermon at my parents’ church. A few months later I was walking down the hall at work, thinking about how amazing knees are, and realized that was a weird thought and that I was feeling similar to how I felt that morning in church. I then realized the common thread was cold medicine, and came to the conclusion that my “enlightened” state at church that morning was in fact a side effect of the large quantity of cold medicine I’d taken to alleviate the symptoms of my sinus infection, and I had … Read More »
