Today is my third day of jury duty, and I have to say–it’s not so bad!
The hours are shorter than work. The lunch break is longer. It’s almost been like a little staycation in Lower Manhattan. Yesterday, I managed to get to a yoga class in the morning and cook eggs before I had to be here.
We had a long lunch recess yesterday, and I went for a manicure and a long walk. It was such a nice day that I can only describe it as intoxicatingly sunny. That’s right, I was drunk on sunshine.
The courthouse. (This is an iPhone picture and not edited in the least. Same with the other photos.)
The one salad that doesn’t bother my stomach–avocado, chicken, walnuts, dried cranberries and tomatoes, from Pret.
I think this is the Woolworth Building.
That new fancy Gehry building.
I’d still like a real vacay, but this little trip to jury duty has been surprisingly good for my soul.
How do you chill out without leaving your city?
