Yesterday I received federal jury duty summons to start serving September 3, aka first day of school. PANIC! I'm very interested to serve jury duty, but on the first day of school?! And federal jury duty could last weeks and even months! Then I called the information number this morning and learned I could ask for postponement, which is ideal for me. (No, I didn't see the fine print about postponement, probably due to the panic obstructing my vision.) So that's what I'm doing, and keep my fingers crossed.
