I should know more about criminal legal proceedings since I plan to study law, but I admit to ignorance, especially where family/juvenile court is involved. All I know is I have to be there and the bad people will be there as well.
Then I'm hurrying off to the hospital to be hooked up to an IV and knocked out so that my hideous surgical scar can be made to look at bit less ghastly and so that an adjustment to a bone graft can be made.
I'm not totally sure which event scares me more at this point. I don't plan on sleeping terribly well tonight. I hope the night's TV reruns are sufficient to hold me attention. I hope the judge doesn't become over;y enraged and find me in contempt if IU fall asleep in court tomorrow.
