Hey, holy crap, listen to this! This afternoon, Saturday (23 Aug 2008), I went grocery shopping like I always do. Got my food, got my drinks, even picked up another bottle of white zinfandel to help me sleep at night (NaTasha’s suggestion, lol). Just so u know, I’ve never been a regular drinker, and when I was younger and heavier, I looked much older, so ID-checking has very rarely come up.
But when that bottle of wine reached the checkout lady (she was cute for someone who looked to be in her 40s, possibly 50s, but definitely not absent-minded or elderly), do you know what she did? She carded me! Hahaha, yup, she actually asked for my ID! And for the reasons above, I think this was the second time I’ve ever been carded in my life! ^_^
At first, I didn’t know what she said. But when I realized what she wanted, I was flabbergasted, thinking “What?” and fumbling with my wallet. After checking my license, she smiled and said “Thanks! You don’t look in your 30s!” I said, “I know, I get that a lot! But even if I don’t look in my 30s, I still don’t look in my 20s?” She shook her head. Then I fumbled again; instead of asking “How old do I look?” I asked “How old should I be?” Obviously referring to the law, she said “You have to be 21.” But either way, I was dumbfounded. Hey Danny, I guess my raw Pop Tarts diet is the “fountain of youth” after all? Holy crap, lol.
So to commemorate this wondrous occasion, an impromptu outdoor photoshoot mere minutes after grocery shopping. Hehe, yup, the exact outfit~ blue jeans, sunglasses, and “Girls in Prison” t-shirt, lol. With a couple of guest appearances by Guiness below, hahaha. ^_^
