Listen to this! I’ve found a way to look forever young.
Please send me your $$$ and I can help you, too.
Just kidding — about the money — but I really have discovered an anti-aging secret.
It happened when the Washington State Department of Licensing informed me that there was more than one way to renew my soon-to-expire driver’s license:

1. Stand in a long line and be met by unsmiling officials.
2. Stay in my cozy home and wait until the last minute to renew on the Internet.
I chose option No. 2 since it was one stroke before midnight on the expiration date.
As I entered cyberspace, printed instructions in hand, I couldn’t help but be concerned about all the questions that would be asked:
1. Are you fatter than the last time we saw you?
2. We know you’re fibbing. Are you fatter than five years ago?
Imagine the ecstasy when I found that these inquiries were nowhere in sight, which was the subject of the next question.
Yes. I answered about no change in vision.
As far as I knew my eyes were still as good as a half decade ago. However, you’d certainly think they could use a bigger font size on this form!
Straining my eyes — it must have been the late hour — I checked off the final boxes with my answers. But where was I supposed to attach a new photo?
I clicked on “Submit.”
Just this week, my new license arrived in the mail. I did a double take. Only the expiration date had changed.
Same weight. Same photo.
There’s a quote that says “time waits for no man.” I think it has stood still for one woman.
