Flying under the Radar.

A few weeks ago I lost my driver's license. In true Jess fashion, I decided to go with the "wait and see" option of finding it, and as it turns out, it still hasn't showed it's face, which is a total bummer in my opinion because it was a great picture...taken when I was 25 and much more carefree than I am today.

So it's beginning to look like I'm going to need to get a new one. BLERGH. Although I am running in circles trying to find these documents to get a new one. For example, I don't have my married name on my birth certificate (duh) so I need my marriage license. Which would be super easy, if it wasn't also lost. But to get a new Marriage License, I need to have a picture ID. See where I'm going with all of this?

Yup, the wait and see sounds good to me.

Except it isn't, because in today's world it is impossible to accomplish ANYTHING without a picture ID.A girl can't even go rogue anymore, you know?

And how much of a crazy person do you sound like when you are asked for your ID and you have to explain that you don't have one? Everyone has an ID. No wonder people automatically look suspicious when I tell them that my ID is missing. Even criminals have ID... it may not exactly be theirs, but they have one none the less, so I haven't really been shocked by all of the "side eyes" I've been getting lately.

So while all of my Facebook friends are debating politics ( I too found myself in some debates) and trying to change the world one Facebook status at a time, I'm just praying that I don't find myself in a situation that I have to prove my identity before I have all of the necessary documentation.

God Bless America.

Truly though, I am so glad to live in such an awesome country, one where we have the freedom to speak our minds and beliefs and to carry on a small potatoes blog like it means something. Blame it on the world cup but I'm feeling extra patriotic this year.

Oh, and there's this little gem for you all.

Troop 877's finest. 

Can you believe that someone actually wanted to get me pregnant? Not only once, but three times for that matter! Man alive, I must have a great personality!

Have a safe and Happy Fourth blog friends!
