Kicking cancer's ass - day 156
Nothing like waiting until the last minute. Today I had to go renew my drivers license. I can hear you groaning with me. My license expires on my birthday... which happens to be this Sunday. Everybody knows a visit to the drivers license office is not a quick thing. I ate breakfast while I was driving the kids to school so I could head straight to town, figuring earlier is better. I brought a hoodie in case it was cold, and had my ever-present drink with me. I was prepared to hunker down for however long my wait would be. I would have brought snacks, too, but I wasn't that prepared.
The DPS drivers license office opens at 8am and I got there at 8:05am (I would have been there right at 8:00 but I went in the wrong door. Don't blame me - last time I renewed online!) I was #8 in the queue. I sat down with the clipboard and my grape kool aid and started answering questions. I was a little perplexed when the first number they called out was 200, but there were only a handful of people in there so I didn't think it was necessarily a bad omen. Turns out I was right. I had no sooner signed the bottom of the renewal form and they called my number. I was in and out of there in twenty minutes. That has to be a record!
