My soul sister had to get her picture taken at D.M.V. today. You know the dreaded D.M.V. photo shoot. Mine usually turn out awful. Not my soul sister’s. She is not only gorgeous, but gets her picture re- taken 4 times at D.M.V. !! The guy actually turns the monitor around and asks her, “is that okay?”. Serious, I am serious as a heart attack! Soul sister says, “Oh, myyyy…. you take realllyyyyy good pictures.” Mr. D.M.V. says to my friend, “Oh, I have lots…. of experience. !”
I told her “You have got to be kidding me, no body gets their picture re-taken at D.M.V., never the less 4 times!” Of course her picture turned out great. Mine looks like I have 2 extra chins.
I also told her ” This is just like the water thing I talked about!” When her and I go into coffee shops, guess whose water they forget? Not hers! No, the male waiters are down on one knee, literally, looking for all the world as if they are proposing to her while taking her order. They are nice enough to me and do take my order, but forget my water.
They follow her outside when she is smoking a cigarette and tell her, ” For such and such an age, you are smokin”……..” and they are not talking about her cigarette. They tell me, have a good day.
These are young guys too. Guys just look at her, even if she does nothing. But she could just crook her finger at them and get pretty much whatever she wants, when she wants, if she wants. No problem. It is truly an amazing thing to witness. Part of it is sheer innocence. The other part is a calculated art marvelous to behold. The sheer beauty of it, I tell ya.
I find the old guys like me. Truckers like me. Big scruffy looking guys with beards like me. The trouble with that is they aren’t bringing me water or taking my picture at D.M.V. ! So what good does it do me? Sheesh. I am definately going for a makeover !!
