Bullet successfully dodged

Spent the afternoon at the Civil Court building downtown thanks to a jury summons. The real secret to not getting empanelled in Harris County is to draw a high number when you're sent off to a courtroom for voir dire. I was #29 of 36 this time (last time I was in row three of four), and all 12 people chosen had lower numbers than me (last time only two higher numbers were picked). They obviously start the selection process with juror #1 and go till they have 12 selections.

Not that I have a method for ensuring a high number, mind you. But hey, it's worked so far.
