"So, you got your new driver's license?"

"Yep."

"Let me see it."


"Why?"

"I want to see the picture."

I can't imagine why anyone would want to see the picture on my driver's license, but he insisted, so I took it out of my wallet and handed it over.

He immediately started laughing.

"What's so funny?" I demanded.

"This picture! This is a horrible picture! What did you do, eat a hundred dill pickles before getting this picture taken?"


"What's that supposed to mean?"

"You look so sour. Why couldn't you at least smile for the picture?"

"Tell me," I said, "what is the purpose of the photo I.D.?"

"For identification."

"And when am I going to need it?"

"Well, uh, I guess...when you get pulled over for speeding."

"And you think I'll be smiling then?"
