I decided to pick up some wine and dinner after work on Friday. It's becoming a habit really. The goal is to find a cheap good wine. Dinner is usually pizza or something from the deli. And I can't forget the pups, they deserve a little treat too. So food and wine in hand off to the check-out stand. This very pleasant grandma checker sees me coming and says, "I'm gonna need to see your ID pumpkin." I think nothing of it. I always get ID'd even though I'm going to be 40 next month. As she glances at it, she says in her now somber voice, "Here you go ma'am."
I went from pumpkin to ma'am in a matter of seconds.
