In my adolescence, my birthday always felt like a pretty big thing, in that it was always a long weekend of end-of-summer BBQ's and pool parties that my mom organized. In my old(er) age, I can't remember the last time I had a birthday party. I don't consider myself a birthday person.. mostly because I don't like all of the attention.

My driver's license expires on my birthday and the cashier at the Trader Joe's Wine Shop mentioned that they only accept expired ID's for a month after the expiration date, which I don't understand. I have a new driver's license, but it doesn't make sense that I wouldn't be able to purchase alcohol if my license is expired because the sole purpose of the license is to prove how old I am, right? Unless I'm missing something. If you can explain that, please educate me.

I'm going to keep using the expired ID and see how much flack I get.

Have a nice Labor Day weekend.
