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?

Aha!

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. LOL $17.20 a day?! What an odd number!! But you’re getting a windfall compared to us here – we get a whole $5 a day, and that’s supposed to cover lunch AND travel expenses! Are they kidding?? Did they get that number back in 1901 and they still think it covers food and gas?? Good luck serving on the jury, hope it’s a quick case. I always do whatever it takes to get out of it!

  2. Wow, I had no clue that you will get “nearly” the same as a lawyer or a judge :o) But it’s cool that you will use it for plush toys!

    Mom has never done jury duty, but now that I know she could get rich doing it, I may send in her name to the courts! Good luck!

    Have a great time!

  6. Clever post. Thanks for doing your civic duty. My husband has served twice, once on a murder trial. I was called once, cut they let me off. It was a huge case, expected to last six months, not practical with two young boys. Hopefully you’ll be through in a few days. $17.20 might buy some nice toys, but Eko will miss you terribly.

  7. Eko has trained you well indeed. He is clearly a deep thinker. You may likely have to do some deep thinking in the trial. Think it through and the results will be perfect. ….and maybe delicious….

    Love and licks,

    Lol. Oh Will your posts are always so much fun to read, and your partner in crime, Eko, is such a willing partner.

  10. With Eko as your trainer will we feel you are well equipped to handle anything that comes your way. Wishing you all the best on the jury…and be sure to not spend all that money in one store. : ) Love the pic of Eko getting treats from the top of the fridge…too funny. Hugs and nose kisses sweet friends.

  11. Justice calls! LOL, don’t forget your super cape…go……run Will, like the wind. Or better yet, like Eko.

  12. 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?

  13. Hope you can send Eko in your place if you’re unwell.

  14. The photo with the back legs did make me chuckle
