I got carded yesterday when I went into Trader Joes to get a six pack and some stuff to bring to dinner at my girlfriend's house. The cashier was pretty adamant that I show some ID. This wasn't the first time, it seems lately they are more intense about carding folks, but this was weird b/c she wouldn't let it go. I had only my debit card, the fambly was in the car, I got dropped off. She just stood there and stared at me when I said my ID was in the car. She's like," I'm sorry, no beer!" I was like, "I'm loving that you think I'm 20 or younger, but I have wrinkles and grey hair!" She stares at me and says "no, I don't see them." I said, "I am 35!" She still wouldn't let me buy beer. I said "ask me something about the 70`s?" She finally said, "Fine, here you go, Oh & I do see your wrinkles now"
"oh, great , thanks, bye.."
- I'm just a mom in the world. A crunchy Catholic mama of 6 trying to make sense of it all and stay positive. 5 boys here & 1 in heaven. One awesome man who I get to grow old with. I help new moms breastfeed. I`m happy. I don`t go to shows or dance clubs every night but I would if I could. Where`s the nanny? When I see her she`s SO fired! One of my boys is super sweet and sensitive, another one is a holy terror. I learn a ton from all of them daily. Like Nigella says, as any parent of small children knows,there comes a point in the day where you can`t go any further without a drink! I love cocktail hour. I`d like nothing more than to be with my family and some good friends surrounded by tropical plants drinking a margarita listening to the Eagles. I don`t care about trendy, I like that grungy 70`s vibe.
