I dunno, my first day of jury duty has been awight. I mean, I was pretty much dreading the whole thing, but I’ll tell you what, the system is really orderly and the peeps who work at the courthouse have been universally courteous and professional. I expected the worse, like, DMV-level of rudeness and incompetence, but so far it’s been the complete opposite. Bravo to the Essex County court system for having your shizz together.
At noon, all of us jurors were dismissed for a lunch break, so I had to find some grub on the mean streets of Brick City. Coincidentally, busy daddy was called in for jury duty a few months ago, and he found a Korean joint that he liked. Amazingly, he remembered what the place was called, so he texted me the coordinates.
It’s a teeny-tiny hole-in-the-wall that serves the usual “salad bar” crap, but they also have a sushi-slash-ramen-slash-soup bar. I ordered the traditional soondobu, which was surprisingly deloycious. The antibiotics that I’m taking are doing a number on my bod. And by a number, I mean the antibiotics are upsetting my tummy and making me feel kinda sorta loopy. Hopefully that’ll pass soon.
It would be great if there was a nap room at the courthouse for jurors cuz I could totes use a nap right now.
