Partners in Crime...

This weekend has been full of situations....but for now I will just deal with the one that involves a black page in the book of my life...and in my daughter's.....

See, we went to the bank to have my name added to the new account the hubby created. I showed my driver's license to the young man who was handling our banking needs....after a few minutes he tells me, "You know that your license is expired...right?"

I take it back and look at it....woah...it is not only expired, it has been expired for two months!!! And here I am driving around....I did not get a notice...I did not get an email....I was not given that little note that tells me I am in the "need to renew zone"...

I tell all this to Jason...."Don't worry, you will get it taken care of this week."

"Yeah" my daughter chimes in, "I'll check on line and see if you still qualify to get it renewed that way...chill."

Next, my daughter is being put on our account as the POD individual....and her state ID is returned to her. The reason? Yup...you guessed it, it's expired....for one month more than mine has been!

"Oh....geeezz! Do you see our faces Kalli?" I ask. "These are the faces that are going to appear on mug shots. These are the faces of Mrs. ___________ and Kalli___________." Visions of the OJ Simpson car chase flash through my mind. My career as a teacher ruined...her's as an aid to the mayor in our sister city is just as damaged. Our business all over the papers.....stories about us told to all.....

"Do you see this face?" I ask as I draw an air-circle around my face...."This face (the air circles continue)...this face.....this face will from now will be known as 'Misdemeanor Face'....and your's (air circles around Kalli's face) will be 'Felon Face'!"

"Why is mine 'Felon Face'?"

"Because YOU are the one who has been in this tangled life of crime and deceit longer than I have been!!!"

So now Misdemeanor Face and Felon Face contemplate their futures and try to think of items they can use to compliment their prison garb.....and Misdemeanor Face looks just awful in stripes......

Hahaha! Am I going to soil my lili white rep hanging around with you? Oh yeah, it's too late for that - my daughter's teddy bear is a known gang leader.
