Like Clockwork

I must be the luckiest girl to never win the lottery (yet.) Every three years TO THE MONTH since I moved back to Boston from Los Angeles I have been called for jury duty. Twice to Middlesex District in Cambridge (dismissed once since I knew the judge, once because no trials in progress) once to Federal court (spent two days in jury selection for a huge pharma case) and last time to Malden District Court (didn't get picked for a piddling, stupid traffic case, but lost the entire day.)

Today, surprise/not, came the juror summons to the Moakley Federal Court in June. It is my duty as a citizen to appear, and I will, but ay yi yi people, haven't you learned you'll never pick me?
