Memphis Monday, Delayed by Weather: Jury Duty

I keep saying "it doesn't get any more Memphis than this," but really, it doesn't get any more Memphis than THIS. I was supposed to start jury duty Monday, but it was put off for two days due to an ice storm that shut the city down. BLAM: Memphis!

Then they told me that I don't even have to go and my obligation is complete. Somehow that feels very Memphis too, but I can't explain why.

I made this sketch during... I don't know what it's called but it's when a whole bunch of people are called to the convention center to get jury duty orientation and to schedule the week that they'll serve jury duty. I guess it's called orientation. It's actually a pretty good system, and it allowed me to accidentally pick the week with the craziest of this crazy winter weather, which ended up getting me out of it altogether.
