I Need to See Your ID, Please
Just how old do I have to be before I no longer get "carded" when I buy alcohol?
Last night my wife and I went grocery shopping. We got the usual selection of food, plus my favorite diet beer. (Hey, the taste is good, and it's two-thirds the calories of regular beer.)
The cashier asked to see my driver's license to prove I was old enough to buy beer.
Dammit, I'm almost 35 years old, and the legal drinking age here is 21. Do I look anywhere near 21? I guess I do. Maybe I should be thankful.
I was buying beer back in 1987, when the legal age was 19, for gosh sakes.
People in my family, on my mother's side that is, tend to look younger than they are.
For years my grandmother went around telling people her daughter (my mother) was only 30 years old. My mother was "30 years old" for about 10 years.
My grandmother simply wanted people to think she was as young as she looked.
It used to crack me that I'd go around my grandfather's town, and people would think I was his son--not grandson. He loved that.
Does this blog make me look fat?
