Kathy and I were talking on the phone this morning while I waited for my chauffeur to pick me up from the hospital. She had visited yesterday and I had asked her if she had watched the silly, fluffy show about Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham's arrival in Los Angeles. I admit I watched it because I was curious about her and I like train wrecks. It was bad and silly, but Posh was slightly smarter than I gave her credit and I was slightly intrigued by some of her behavior. Posh got caught driving with her Spanish driver's license and had to take the full driver's exam at the MVA. I was actually amazed that a city as large as L.A. makes its citizens take a written exam when I took a computerized version here in Maryland back when I was in high school (many moons ago). However, it was pretty funny watching Posh take a written exam and cheating by asking her personal assistant some of the questions - she got caught by the exam reviewer though, but didn't get into much trouble. She passed the exam and was issued a California driver's license, however, poor Posh stuck with the photo they took and she wasn't too happy about it.
Anyway, Kathy mentioned that Maryland now gives you the option to pick your driver's license photo from either three or five pictures and I was surprised because when I got my last license I didn't have the choice. She urged me to check the expiration date on my license and I found that it expired on my birthday earlier this month. Great, of all the years for it to expire, it had to expire this year when I have no hair. I'll probably go to the MVA Express on Tuesday (never go there on a Monday) with my wig on and plead my "cancer card" if they give me trouble for driving with an expired driver's license. It'll be weird looking at my driver's license when my hair does grown in because it won't look the same. I'll also have a constant reminder in my wallet of this year. Hmm, on the positive side, my license will expire in five years and that's how long it will take me to be considered "in complete remission" if I have no relapses between now and then.
