Me: How’s jury duty? Will you be kept in a secure location during the trial?
Mom: Yes, I should emerge in the spring when the snow melts. Jury selection is exactly like a reaping. Including having a video about our great justice system. It gave me the creeps. The only thing they didn’t do is draw blood.
Mom: And nobody volunteered to take my place! I’m the Katniss of the courtroom.
Me: Do you have a bow and arrow?
Mom: No. I have a pad & pen. Be warned. And afraid.
