As a potential juror in an assault-and-battery case, I was sitting in a courtroom, answering questions from both sides. The prosecutor asked had I ever been mugged? Did I know the victim or the defendant? The defense attorney took a different approach. "I see you are a teacher," he said. "What do you teach?"
"English and theater," I responded. "Then I guess I better watch my grammar," the defense attorney quipped.
"No," I shot back. "You better watch your acting."
I was excused from the case.
