You Can’t Handle The Truth!

Well, I expected jury duty to be a one day affair, but that’s not the case.  What is the case? I’m not allowed to talk about it because I was selected to be a member of the jury.  I blame Eko.  During the proceedings the lawyers for both sides interviewed each of us individually and it came up that I spent a year driving around the country with Eko.  The lawyers, the judge and the rest of the courtroom seemed to get a kick out of the story and thus my fate was sealed.  I guess if a dog can vouch for you, the law figures you’re a good pick.

Eko’s in charge of the apartment again today while I’m at court.  Luckily he has equipped me with all the skills I need to be a good juror.  Most notably, Eko has helped my powers of perception.

Like how I can perceive when he wants a treat

Or look at the evidence to determine that Eko has given up on our walk

And of course I also had to do some serious sleuthing to solve the case of the Windy City Bandit.

Treats were disappearing from the top of my fridge, but how?


I have no idea how they came up with the formula, but jury duty pays exactly $17.20 a day. I have promised to use this windfall of cash to buy Eko some nice plush toys for his patience.  Justice calls, I’m off!

  1. Eko, all your hard work and dad training is finally paying off!! Hopefully the case won’t be too long…nor too short and your dad will make a nice little bundle of cash to splurge on you – lucky boy!

    PeeS: Good luck Mr Juror – we don’t have jury duty in SA so we find this stuff very interesting. Do you have to put in for leave from your job?
