My husband has been asking me for the last three years of our marriage if I’ve gotten my Texas drivers License yet. Each time, I’d point out that I still had time before my original Goergia license expired- and that I would indeed get around to it. I was procrastinating. Clearly there are a lot of reasons to want to avoid the Department of Motor Vehicles – but I had an extra one.
The license I have now was my very FIRST drivers license!! It’s the picture of me, after I happily aced my drivers test . And now that situations have conspired to force me to get my Texas license immediately, I will have to hand over that special piece of memorabilia! I know they wont let me keep it- it says so on their website. And not only will I be handing them that first piece of my driving freedom, but I’ll also be surrendering the last official document that had my maiden name on it. Boo!!!! I didn’t want to keep it forever!! Just for one last year!
So this week… I’d like you all to play the tiniest finger violin for me. And picture me in a gigantic never ending line, with a screeching toddler, and a million forms I have probably filled out incorrectly. And pity me. I will be officially saying goodbye to my last vestige of youth….
Goodbye youth!!! I’ll miss you!!! You were wonderful, and I really enjoyed our special times together!!!
