I thought for sure my periphery experience would lead to me being dismissed, but if they had used that as criteria, there would be no jurors left.
What ensued? A boring experience involving rooms with no windows, strangers with very strong opinions and strange snack habits, and a dead cockroach that I would come to know as Miriam.
"The juror clearly instigated the exchanges. She smiles at him. He smiles politely back at her. She giggles. He blushes."
