Though I finished highschool almost 10 years ago, have been married for over 3 years, and am the mother to two children, there was yet one life experience I felt I lacked to initiate me into the world of adults:
Almost everyone else in my family and circle of local friends has received jury summons in the last few years – Joanna, Alyssa, Sue, Kelly, Micah, Alice, my mom, my mother and father-in-law, even my own husband! Yet I remained uncalled – until last night.
I got home at 11 having driven down toward Hornell with Elise for Rachel’s Maidenhood Party, and there it was on the counter waiting for me. I’ve told everyone I’ve seen today of this monumental occaision – the arrival of my long-awaited ticket into official adult. My mother-in-law said I reminded her of Ernest in my excitemtnt to serve. 🙂 Question is, will they actually need me on the day of, or will having Claire along disqualify me? I will have to wait till next week to find out.
