Runs for Cookies: Three Issues Thursday: Witness

Regardless that I stated I used to be going to attend till your complete season had aired, Jerry and I watched the second episode of The Golden Bachelor yesterday. I completely cherished the primary date that Gerry selected to expertise with one of many ladies. Versus the drained, over-the-top dates from The Bachelor (like a helicopter trip to a seaside for dinner at sundown) they went to an old-school diner the place they cut up a milkshake and fries. Way more my fashion!

(Warning: Gentle spoiler of The Golden Bachelor second episode) Throughout their dialog, Gerry used the road “do not cease believing” after which the music by Journey came visiting the radio within the diner. Then it became an entire flash mob! It was this scene that impressed my thought for Three Issues Thursday at present…

Three Issues That I Hope To Witness Sometime:

1. A Flash Mob

I’m obsessive about flash mobs. They utterly amaze me in simply how the entire thing needs to be coordinated and fall into place excellent. I’ve seen them on TV (the one which I shared on my “jaw droppers” submit was utterly beautiful) however I’ve by no means truly seen one in actual life. And it is one thing that’s on my secret bucket listing! (I do not even have a secret bucket listing, however this might be on the very high if I did.)

I do not care whether or not I simply witness it, take part in it, or am the topic of the surprise–it would simply be so cool to expertise sometime.

2. A Delivery

When Becky was pregnant with Luke, we went out to dinner and the topic of beginning got here up. Becky is a registered nurse and he or she stated that she thinks all people ought to expertise seeing a beginning and a loss of life (ideally not on the identical day) of their lifetime. (She stated I might be there when Luke was born, however Brian needed it to be simply him and Becky. In addition to, Luke was born lower than an hour after she began having contractions!)

I can perceive experiencing a loss of life as nicely, though that is not one thing to be enthusiastic about, after all. I believed I might be with Mark when he died in 2014, and although it will have been so heartbreaking, I really feel like he would have preferred having me there. I might have finished it for him.

So far as a beginning, I really feel just like the feelings within the room–from main as much as the beginning, the beginning itself, and instantly afterward)–would be SO sturdy and, assuming there are not any problems, a real pleasure to witness. If I had any need to be a nurse, I believe working in labor and supply can be my alternative.

The probabilities are very slim that I will ever witness a beginning, however it’s a (not so secret) hope that I’ll someday.

Jerry bought so emotional when Noah was born, the nurse thought he would go out so she made him sit down, haha. My finest pal Sarah (behind him) was there too, as had been my mother and sister.

3. A Jury Trial

This is not a lot to witness, however extra to expertise. I might love to take a seat on a jury for a giant trial! Not solely am I very interested by the way it all works, I really feel like I might make an excellent juror. Understanding how emotional I might be might make it appear that I would not be very goal, however I believe it will be fairly the opposite. I’ve at all times been good at taking a look at issues objectively and I am a “rule follower” for essentially the most half. If given directions, I can comply with them proper to the letter.

I do not consider in capital punishment, nevertheless, so I would not be capable of sit on a jury for a trial the place that’s on the desk; in any other case, the expertise of listening to a criminal offense being laid out, listening to witness testimonies, reviewing proof, and shouldering the accountability of paying tremendous shut consideration to element can be fairly superb.

I’ve acquired discover of jury responsibility just a few instances, actually–when the children had been very younger, I used to be excused (twice) as a result of I did not have childcare; after we went to Punta Cana, I used to be clearly in a foreign country; after which final 12 months, I used to be so excited to get discover once more, however acquired a second letter telling me I wasn’t wanted.

Apparently, whereas I have been summoned 4 instances, Jerry has by no means been summoned! Hopefully, I will get one other summons sometime; if chosen, I might be joyful to do it.

And there it’s… three issues I hope to witness (or expertise) sometime! Have any of you skilled any of those? Are they as superior as I think about?
