Someday, I Will Wish For Somebody -ANYBODY- to Card Me While Purchasing Liquor.

Yesterday, I decided to go buy a cheesecake and a bottle of wine before picking Jason up at the train (since it was Valentine's Day and all.) Anyway, after waiting in the checkout line with the girls behind a slew of men carrying their last minute oops-I-almost-forgot-to-get-something-for-the-wife-for-Valentine's-Day flowers, I realized that I had left my driver's license in the pocket of my other coat from when we went to the show on Saturday night in Milwaukee. I don't really expect anyone to bend the rules for me, but seeing that I shop at this store nearly every day, have purchased alcohol many times in the past, and have not one but TWO children, that maybe the woman ringing me up would not think I was nineteen years old.

Not so.

Apparently, I either look like I got pregnant at the age of fifteen, or like I borrowed somebody elses kids in order to scam a bottle of merlot from the Dominick's checkout lady.

I was a little irritated, but since it was my own fault for not having my identification on me, I actually drove home to get my I.D. without too much complaint (yes, I wanted wine that badly with dinner), waited in the now twice-as-long checkout line behind the last-minute-gift-giving-husbands with my (possibly fake) kids AGAIN, only to find that they guy who would ring me up this time DIDN'T EVEN ASK TO SEE MY I.D. This caused me to wave my drivers license in the poor guy's face, yelling "DON'T YOU WANT TO SEE THIS??" like a certified crazy person.

I hope you all had a fabulous Valentines Day!

P.S. Hooray for the new site layout!


  1. BEAUTIFUL layout! I love it! :) Too funny about getting carded and then not getting carded. I have signed up with various Mystery Shopper companies, and I got a call the other day to go do a tobacco audit. Since I look VERY pregnant right now, I didn't think that would be a good idea. I might end up getting yelled at by someone or something, even though I've never even tried to smoke before. lol

    That's it. Just wanted to comment 'cause I can. :)
    Oh, and by the way, if you're hoping to get carded more often, may I suggest drinking more booze and starting smoking? Cigarettes are GREAT for that. ;)
    You gotta inhale, though. No cheating.
