jury duty

I am not looking for Hallelujahs - or presents - or acknowledgements -- or whatever ... read on.

In the mail today, I received a summons (or whatever it is called) to appear for Jury Duty on November the 8th.

Naturally, I decided to stay home instead of giving my time to the justice system. I have always heard that juries are made up of people who were not smart enough to get out of jury duty.

I will be a bit out of touch on the 8th -- so I called the court today.

I called the lady on the form. She was quite pleasant.

I said, "I received my jury notice for the 8th but I have two problems."
She responded quite pleasantly.

I continued, "first of all, I won't be able to be there on the 8th; however, my second thing may make that of no importance. I turn 70 on the 4th."

She laughed and said that I had no problem and would send the official form to me to complete.

There are benefits to turning 70. As of this moment, I can only think of one benefit to turning 70.
