So, today I have to get a new driver's license. A few weeks ago I got the paperwork from the DMV telling me that my license expires on January 31, but I have to renew it by today, January 10 (don't ask, I can't explain how the State of New Jersey decides things) . I had planned on dieting and getting lots of rest so my face would look young and thin and dewy and fresh, or something like that. I was going to get my hair cut and colored. Of course, I procrastinated as I am known to do.
I've come up with a great idea! (Yeah, it could be great. Don't be getting all judgmental. You hardly know me.) If we had any women in real power in this state, I'm pretty sure I could get this moved up the political ladder. I think that someone should make it law that you should be able to have a new picture license taken on a day when you look really good. I'm talking rosey cheeks and no sinus puffiness around the eyes. On the day when you wear the top that works really well with your complexion. Then it wouldn't matter that the sweater that I wore yesterday would have been perfect to complement my fair skin and bring out my blue eyes.
Think about it. Who wouldn't go for that idea? Well, other than those really sweet, ambitious, cheerful, knowledgeable and attentive people (*dripping with sarcasm*) behind the counter at the DMV. I foresee an all new "I'm just a bill" with a freshly pressed Bill, looking his best, coming down the steps of Capitol Hill and heading off to get a picture on his driver's license, one reflecting the great day he's having, with a sparkle in his eyes and a confident smile.
