It’s midnight. I just got home. Everyone else is in bed. I saw this piece of mail sitting on the foyer table and I patiently took off my jacket and boots before I opened the envelope and read its contents. I raised the letter in the air and whispered a triumphant “Yes!”
Yes, jury duty. Yes, voting. Yes. Yes, United States citizenship.
Wooooo-hoo! Yippee! YAY! AAAAAHHHH! WEEEEEEE!
I wish I could describe how I feel. I’ll probably be weeping that entire morning. I’m trying to keep calm right now. My heart is so full.
This is for real, y’all. Ten more days until I become a jury-serving, voting machine.
