My driver's license expired yesterday. It occurred to me while I was checking in for a flight online, so I can be thankful that it occurred to me then and not while I was standing in the security line at the airport; there's still time to pack my passport. I, of course, knew that my license would expire, in fact, I knew the exact date it would expire the moment it arrived in the mail. But it still crept up on me, and now I'm going to have to ride shotgun in a rental car shouting directions for a long weekend. Really, forgetting to renew my license is more of an inconvenience for my wife than for me. You know what? I'm going to go get her license and make a note in my calendar one month before it expires.
