Not Just A River In Egypt

Today I went grocery shopping. When I was checking out the cashier asked for my ID for my six pack of Mike's Hard Lemonade. I was *this close* to leaping over the counter and shouting "I love you" while I hugged the poor young thing.

I gleefully handed it over and asked the teenage cashier if he wanted a date. I think I scared him... I seem to be having that effect on my new friends lately. Funny how the same thing used to annoy me when I was 19 and 20 and forced to drag out my fake ID .

I have decided to ignore the sign I saw on my way out that said they require identification from everyone and that customers should consider it flattery. I know my cashier thought I was under 21. I am also going to pretend I didn't see him card the old man behind me in line who was at least 80 and hunched over his cane.

And I know when I heard the cashier mutter that I was the same age as his mother, that he really meant to say sister. I walked out of the store a happy woman and I flung my fabulous blonde streaked hair over my shoulder. Because I don't have gray hair, not one. Those are very blonde highlights.

Denial. It is a wonderful place to live.
