Unexpected

I bought a bottle of wine today, and the clerk asked for my ID.

I laughed because it’s been quite a long time since I’ve been carded. Then I asked if she cards everyone.

She said she asks for ID from anyone who looks under forty-five.

I was born in 1961.

Let me do the math for you: I’m fifty-four.

Not an exciting event for you, perhaps, but it was for me.

This is my Mom. She’s eighty-four. Perhaps I take after her.IMAG0031-2
