A few years ago, I was called for jury duty, but I didn’t try to wiggle out of it. I was young and naive and I was working a boring job at a boring company that offered full paid time off for jury duty.

So, when it was announced in the court room that the trial I was up for was an actual MURDER TRIAL, I was all, “Oh, please God, yes! Sign me up and strap me in! I want to go on a 3D ride through our nation’s justice system! And I want paid time off away from my cubicle!”

I wrote this because it happened to me. Also, I’m proud of this.

(Yes, this is my first time writing for xojane.com. So I’m excited.)
