Jury duty today, and I will still need to serve further as a juror on Monday. Because of today’s deliberations, I missed Amy‘s MFA graduation ceremony in New York, and I’m rather cross and angry at the whole justice system for it.
The scowl on my face went away, however, when I came home to this:
Well, I’m off to catch a train. I couldn’t make it to Amy’s graduation, but I’m still visiting her for the weekend, since we haven’t seen each other for over a month. (She was very understanding about the whole jury duty issue — I had thought this trial would end Thursday, but it didn’t — and I feel quite blessed to love and be loved by someone as patient and gentle with me as her.)
