Stolen Lines # 4 Announcement and a Very Important Question

I'll post the next Stolen Line on Monday, April 27th.

In the meantime, here's a very important question...

If a judge has a booger, are you supposed to tell her/him?

Lol. You just gave me flashbacks. Well, if you follow the lead of the prosecutor and the defense attorney who were in play during my jury duty experience, you don't really even acknowledge when the judge is napping. Calling out my aged judge only seemed to happen when there was an evidentiary/objectionable ruling at stake. Then we would all act dumb and allow everyone to repeat the past 10 minutes or so.

So, I'm thinking no. Just my humble opinion. But you never know, it could be entertaining for the jurors.

Only if you can do so by making various gestures at your own nose which might cue the Judge to so so to him/herself. But if it pleases the court, your honor, your booger is offending my client and distracting my duties might be an acceptable lead? Maybe?

That is a tough question. You have to be discreet about it, but I'd want to know if I had one in court...

This happened to me, only in reverse. I was sitting in chambers and I distinctly felt a weird ticklish sensation on the end of my nose and all I could think was, "There's a booger on my nose. I'm in chambers and there's a booger on my nose. Wtf. There's a booger on my nose." Highly uncomfortable situation.

Not only must you tell the judge, you must ask to approach the bench, bring a tissue with you, and remove the booger from the judge's nose yourself! I would actually remain silent unless you were in the judge's chambers - then it would be a toss up!
