Growing up as a dancer, something that obviously requires physical energy and athleticism, I often didn’t think about how exhausting it can be to “just” use my brain. Sitting and working doesn’t seem like it’s that tiring because I’m not doing anything physical, yet it still takes quite a lot of energy to use your brain power.
Surprisingly, sitting around (falling asleep) while listening to other people talk can be even more exhausting. That’s what I did today.
I had jury duty.
I also had to get up earlier than usual to get there on time (I’m definitely a night person). And I have to go back tomorrow.
Since I’m not allowed to talk about the trial, and I probably shouldn’t talk about how inefficient the whole jury selection process was… is…, here’s a video of my kittens playing with a string.
(Leeloo’s the grey one and Arya’s the cow kitty. Tiger makes an appearance at the end. Please ignore my fish-belly-white knees.)
