Jury duty questions

Yesterday, I got my very first jury summons ever. It took 25 years, which makes me laugh because Craig - who has his green card but isn't a citizen - averages three a year. The one thing that means is that I've heard no firsthand stories on what it's like. All I know is what I've seen on TV and what I remember from civics class in high school. I know I report, then wait on the chance I get called in, but that's it for the most part. I get dismissed if I don't get called, but...what happens if I do? My date is July 10, and we're supposed to go to Michigan the week of the 20th. What're the odds jury duty could get in the way?

Anyone want to share experiences?
