I was going rifling through my purse the other day, when I noted my driver's license would expire on my birthday. This was actually pretty good timing as we have just transferred out of state, and I would need one anyway.
However, I realized I had 3 hours to do so.
I was getting ready to take The Collective to the pool, and so I had my hair in a chippy clip thingy, no makeup, and ratty clothes, complete with swimsuit straps under them.
I hopped into the car and headed out. About half way out of town I realized this was a "permanent" photo. One I would whipping out of my wallet every five seconds in order to prove my identity.
No makeup, hair not did....and a photo op.
I went ahead and did it, even though getting a photograph sans makeup goes against every sane bone in my body.
The only reason I had it done? The Military ID I carry. I can use it, and if things get bad, I can resort to the "other one"....
