Lori cooked her mother’s recipe spaghetti and meatballs for dinner and we also had a salad with a very tangy and delicious vinaigrette, croutons, and twisted bread sticks. I loved all of it. Lori even remembered the grated parmesan cheese I love so much on such dishes.
The Journey Begins…
“I’ll call you when I get to my parent’s house,” Lori told me as I watched her drive off this morning.
I locked Lori’s apartment and headed homewards this morning as I had to get my commercial driver’s license renewed in Lafayette, Alabama. $55 bucks later, with a new picture taken, I was set for four more years. I was so relieved when there weren’t any lines or the usual rigmarole. I was also so very relieved they didn’t give me an eye exam.
I did find a real and very large pearl earring on the floor where I sat and gave it to one of the ladies working in the driver’s license office. The owner came out and personally thanked me.
“Do you want to renew your Haz-Mat status?” my officer then asked as I stood at the counter. “We will need fresh fingerprints and an updated background check.”
“Just let it lapse,” I told the very animated soul sitting behind the counter in front of me.
