No jury duty today! On the one hand, I’m happy because I don’t have to disrupt my life for it. (Where “disrupt” means what? Not work for the day? I probably could have handled that.) On the other hand, I’ve never done it, and I might enjoy it. I’ve never even gone to the courthouse to possibly get chosen for one. I’ve only been summoned twice, and both times I’ve found out the night before that I don’t have to go. Maybe next time. I do think it’s a little weird that I got one summons in VA over the course of 12 years and then got my OR summons in less than a year.
I did decide to put my “I can’t focus on work” minutes to learning ukulele chords instead of playing sudoku online. If I just do that for a few minutes every day, I might actually be able to play a song without fumbling through chord changes one of these days. I will consider that a major accomplishment. The next step will be singing and playing at the same time (!).
Doing it during the work day, using time I wasn’t working anyway (everyone needs a break!), makes me happy. Banjos might sound happier than ukuleles, but I think it’s a close race.
