Four Down. One To Go.

Best way to get out of jury duty: be the criminal.

Or just hold your breath. I’ve been on call all week, and have managed to make it through today as a free man. I’ll find out tonight if I don’t have to report tomorrow, and if I don’t, I’ll have fulfilled my obligation.

I don’t think I’m exaggerating when I say that jury duty is like being in prison. Yes, it’s my civic duty, whatever. I’ll pass. I give back in my own ways. Like donating blood every eight weeks. And later this month, I’m going to work at the LA Regional Food Bank.

I’ll find out at 5 p.m. if I’ve beat this rap. Keep those fingers and toes crossed, everybody.
