About a month ago I got the letter. I had been selected for jury duty. After much eye rolling and grumbling, I decided that there wasn’t much I could do other than to show up and hope I wasn’t chosen.
Well a month passes quickly and tomorrow is the day I must report for my civic duty. I am torn–I think this will be an interesting process and I will probably learn a lot. On the other hand I am supposed to be at a meeting to discuss our ELA adoption and I am DARNED excited about this process.
I am concerned that I won’t be chosen for jury duty due to the fact that almost everyone who is on trial has been in one of my classes or could have a child in my current class. Also, almost all of our trials have involved drugs and I am sure this one will not be an exception. It’s really hard on my heart to watch people who are suffering from the effects of drug addiction.
I don’t really want to miss the ELA adoption discussion either. It’s kind of a big deal that I was chosen and we haven’t had an ELA adoption for about 12 years. Plus, the thought of a real lunch is so enticing.
I believe this is what my mom would call a rock and a hard place. #justsayin

It does sound like a hard decision! Let us know what you decide. Good luck!
Both options are one in a lifetime (hopefully). A rock and hard place indeed.
Hope things turn out for you, maybe you’ll be dismissed early enough to make it to the ELA meeting? Fingers crossed…
Either way will provide you with great slicing material. Can’t wait to hear how it goes.
