Red Tape

After four hours, two trips to the post office, nearly a hundred dollars, and a lot of standing in line, we have now submitted the paperwork for Katherine’s passport.  She, naturally, remained sunny throughout the whole affair while her parents seethed silently as we watched all kinds of inefficiencies unfold before us.  When asked if she, an American citizen, was submitting this form with full knowledge and having never committed crimes listed in some code or other, she demonstrated her latest trick: she made wet fizzing sounds at the postal official.

    I think infant passports are hilarious. For the next 5 yrs, you can take any white child anywhere in the world…
