Do you remember the last time you had jury duty? Kind of boring, right? A lot of sitting around.
Well, my friend Lanie did serve on a defective penile implant case. But even penile implants get seriously dull after a couple days.
So my husband Rick goes off to jury duty last week but Mr. Fancy gets to participate in Juror Appreciation Day. This is a day when “notable New Yorkers” get excused from their jury service in order to tell the rest of us why we should freakin’ love jury duty.
See, there’s Rick between Nathan Lane and Katie Couric.
Oh and yes, that’s actress Kathleen Turner all the way to the left.
The first person to name the guy between Kathleen Turner and Nathan Lane definitely gets some kind of mama bird bonus prize.
So you can imagine my delight to learn that my local TV news anchor husband is a “notable New Yorker.” I’m now realizing that I need to give that boy more respect at home.
After Rick’s high profile day at the courts, I wanted to make sure his weekend was just as glam.
So we went shopping for a new toilet seat….
We spent time discussing the merits of a $25 toilet seat vs. an $11 toilet seat. I mean, would my arse truly feel the $14 difference?
Rick started chatting it up with another customer to get his advice. Why? I guess because it’s so darn fun to talk to strangers. And who better to make our plumbing decisions than some random guy wandering down the Home Depot toilet seat aisle.
Finally, we splurged for the $25 seat.
Just Rick and me doing our part to jump start this economy.
And because you just know that ritzy Katie Couric isn’t sitting on some $11 cheapo toilet seat.
