Cobweb: Getting Out of Jury Duty
This is the single card I pulled yesterday when I was reading about whether I would get jury duty today or not. About a month or so ago I received a jury summons. Having a weak bladder (I need to pee every 30 minutes to an hour) and slight claustrophobia, I didn't particularly want to be stuck in a court room for a day or three. I watched as every case around me was dismissed (I was monitoring them online). I was frustrated because my husband took Tuesday and Wednesday off this week to spend with me before our daughter is out of school and it's harder to have open-ended time together. Not to mention, my husband has a very limited number of days off for the remainder of this year. I wanted to make the most of them!
I received this card as one of the pulls representing whether I would get jury duty. Most of the readings I got were fairly positive, although they were a bit mixed. I arrived at court and spent 2.5 hours there during the jury selection process, and also a lot of sitting and waiting. When I was not selected as one of the jurors from the larger group of about 28, I was dismissed. Woohoo! I felt like I got a get out of jail free card. I met up with my husband and we got to spend the day together. We also get to spend tomorrow together, and I am so grateful.
This card is about being protected from something that is out of your control that you perceive as negative. I would say this qualifies, though on a lesser level than something more tragic, obviously. It is a mundane but good example for me.
Sending you all goodness for your day,
