The most excellent (worst) driver license picture ever.

The guy said I could retake it.


But there was this woman before that was embarrassing . . . she got her picture taken, and then, "Oh my gosh. You CANNOT make that my picture. My hair looks horrible."

Then, "My hair looks like crap today?" The guy that works at the DMV smiled indulgently and said, "No it doesn't." And I don't know what happened after that, but she went on for a few minutes. 

So when it was my turn, he said, "Smile!" And this is what I came up with:


I had previously determined I would smile without showing my teeth, but apparently something is wrong with my mouth, and only half of it actually smiles when I do that. 

Hmm.

Compare to my old picture:


Well, you know. . . what can you do, except laugh?

Ha. Haha. I can't wait to see the real thing.

I love it because you look very apathetic and indifferent.

when jenny and I renewed our licenses, we decided to smile as broadly and ridiculously as possible. the picture lady was not impressed. she did not even smile, and just said "stop doing that." she would not let us get a picture until we smiled normally! bo-oring. That's a terrible picture, by the way ;)
