LBeau went to the license office today to renew his driver’s license. After taking his photo and typing in all of the vital information—address, weight, hair and eye color—the lady gave him a copy to look over to make sure all of the information was correct.
“You’ve got my hair color as white,” LBeau exclaimed. “My old license had it as brown.”
“It pretty much looks white to me,” she replied.
I’m just glad she recognized that he still has some hair.
Anyway, it reminded me of my trip to the license office last October to renew my own license. I decided that it was about time to correct the hair color on my license. For four years, my license said I had brown hair, and I’ve always thought of myself as a blonde.
So when the lady handed me my information to check for errors, I politely said, “Don’t you think we need to fix my hair color? It’s not really brown.”
Looking at me, she agreed. So she changed it—to gray!!
Sometimes it’s best to leave well enough alone.
