  9. I didn't give a line when I was being selected for jury duty. I was in the back row and the judge asked my profession. I told them historical romance author and the idiot woman who is a professor of literature at a college and should have known better snickered loud enough the judge heard her. He and I locked gazes for a moment and he gave me a grin. I suppose my expression was 'which foot should I use to kick her in her thick head' but, of course, being a professional writer and nodded back at him.

    People like that have no class and waste their time doing what??? traveling the halls of malls and such? Yes, you hit my rant button, Victoria. I suppose the best thing to do is pat them on the shoulder and say something profane like "dear I am so sorry you've not achieved a dream like me" and then walk away grinning like a loon. :)

    1. Paisley, I cannot believe she snickered. What is wrong with people?
