I've never been called for jury duty ... at least that I know of. I suppose there could be one way back in California that I could be hauled in for like I was years ago for a hitch hiking ticket I received on my way to somewhere else. It is a crime to not show up or give them a good excuse so I was relieved at how simple it was to contact them over the Internet. Of course mine was easy by saying I've lived in Mexico for 9 years.

A bit of an exaggeration but some versions of Pozole are not far from the above. Today we had chicken soup and it's common here to get a wing or leg in your bowl along with a bunch of veggies. I love the soup, the veggies, the flavor with peppers-salt-lime-onion on the side but it reminded me of my aversion to meat still on the bone in soup. It's sloppy eating.
Often the cutting of a pig seems to be totally arbitrary as to what pieces end up where and connected to what. It's just so much easier to eat meat off the bone and seldom a mannerly way clean the bone at the table. Just a personal quirk for me maybe and how I handle it depends on my hunger level.
