I got an "F"!
Right now I am looking at a priceless piece of paper I just pulled from my wallet and unfolded. I am thinking of having it laminated, or framed, or both, although a frame might make it a tad too bulky for my handbag.
"INTERIM DRIVERS LICENSE" it says at the top.
"CHRISTINE MICHELLE DANIELS" it says a few lines below.
And then, finally, the moment I've been waiting for, for as long as I was old enough to dream impossible dreams:
I got my "F"! Yesterday, at long last, I got the grade I always wanted.
It began with a lot of paperwork. I needed a document proving I had undergone a legal name change, which required six weeks to process, including a legal notice that had to be published in a newspaper one day a week for four consecutive weeks.
