Jilda and I are thinking about traveling outside the country next year. Our passports expired a while back, so we filled out new paperwork, and went today to get our new photos made.
If mine had numbers, it would look like a police mugshot of someone about to be thrown into the drunk tank, or perhaps someone busted for contributing to the delinquency of a senior citizen.
I can almost hear the dialog between the clerks.
"ALL photographs must be taken under glaring florescent lights, and this one looks as if you can detect a bit of natural light, so please re-take it."
"These won't do either, I don't see any zits or nose hair."
"HELLO, he's smiling on this one. Am I going to have to take it myself?"
Jilda's actually looked better than mine. The upside is that not many people will ever see it.
