I am now fulfilling my jury duty! Right now, as we speak! I'm at the courthouse! It really is an honor.
You're likely wondering, "Why Brant? Why was he a chosen one for this?"
I'm not sure, but I can only presume someone just likes my style, my demeanor, and took note of it. I have a judicious temperament, a certain way of discerning matters of justice, and a real sense of even-handed-ness. I'm not sure who nominated me, but I admit, I certainly understand why. I've been told I have a certain je ne sais pas le realite'.
I had to park at the Palm Beach Convention Center, and then take a "jury trolley" to the courthouse. There was a neat rapport on the trolley. None of us potential jurors, you know, "talked", but we enjoyed a deep, silent, sense of camaraderie that you wouldn't really understand, because you're not on a jury.
It's supposed to be a Jury of My Peers, which is awesome. We'll probably talk about library clubs and eat toast and play accordia, once everybody gets warmed up to me. We've been here five hours, so I'm sure that'll kick in soon!
I'm angling for a Jury Foreman role, and I was pleased that there seemed to be a silent acceptance from others on the trolley that I would be their leader.
It's a County Court assignment, which is a bit disappointing. I'd hoped to sit on a U.S. Supreme Court jury, to demonstrate my thorough-going knowledge of the law.
My next hurdle, as I wait, is to be selected by the lawyers and judge for the case! I can't wait!
I should pass with flying colors! I hope they like my executioner's hood!
