Life is like that

Having a grumpy, irritated and particularly weird-looking picture of yourself on your driver's license.

Making a black and white photocopy of the above driver's license and realizing that the weirdness of the photo has now been enhanced ten-fold by it showing only two eye-whites and the tip of a shiny nose even a teensy bit clearly.

Faxing the above photocopy to a travel agent who has never seen you before. I am sure the agent's office-folk gathered around the fax machine trying to figure out if the picture is that of an alien or not.

Like Calvin says, "That's one of the remarkable things about life. It's never so bad that it can't get worse."

Calvin rocks. :)
