It is my heart's desire to be on a jury. Yes. I'm sorry. It's true. I am a frustrated law student who never got farther than taking the LSAT. Before this recent return to shows like Backyardigans, it was all Court TV all the time. Now I am down to a few minutes of The People's Court with Judge Marilyn Milian. (The opening says she is "the hottest judge on television." That's fine. When she gets really worked up she starts firing off in Spanish which is pretty fun.)
So imagine my excitement when an envelope came yesterday from our county courthouse . . . for Brent. I called him right away to report the good news. He was not as thrilled as I thought he'd be.
