I did my civic duty today; I reported for jury duty. I wasn't seated on a jury. It seems no one wants a retired nurse on the jury for a civil case regarding injury. In retrospect, being a nurse was a good choice, if only because it keeps me off juries.

The case in question was a doozy. The plaintiff claims that the defendant, a stripper, was drunk, and fell on him while giving him a lap dance, causing serious damage to his penis. Worse, there will be at least 4 television writers on the jury (I would have been an alternate, so I was there through the whole process of jury selection), who will hear all the embarrassing evidence.

If it were me? I'd find the trial a lot more painful than the original injury.
