About Me: I'm a Loser
Yes, that is a photo of my passport, which I received in the mail last Thursday. In fact, it's my very first U.S.A. passport. So let's crank up the Lee Greenwood song, "God Bless the USA," in my honor!
Um, on second thought, let's not, as I've yet to finish digesting my lunch.
I'll admit that I've been a total loser for not having had a passport earlier. My excuses were that the process for obtaining one was either ridiculously expensive or too time consuming. In fact, neither was the case.
The passport application fees amounted to approximately $110, and I spent less than 10 minutes at the post office where I submitted my application and got my passport photos taken. Ten days later, I had my passport in hand!
Now, I just need to save money so that, one day, I'll be able to afford to go on one of these culinary vacations in Italy. In the meantime, I can dream.
