So, even though the case ended up being dismissed, I guess that extra day that I showed up was considered jury service. I didn’t get the $15 a day that the county pays for compensation, because I’m a state employee (and well, because state employees receive paid Jury Leave). I did, however, receive reimbursement for mileage. I was pleasantly surprised to open the envelope from the county Superior Court to find money and not a subpoena. It was a nice fat check payable to me for the amount of a whopping two dollars and thirty-eight cents. Whoopee! It was burning such a hole in my pocket that naturally I had to go out and spend it all.
I went to one of my favorite local independent fabric and yarn shops, where they were having a big sale on yarn. It wasn’t until I got my haul home that I noticed my chosen fibers all had something in common. Today, for some reason, I guess I must have been drawn to the color green.
