Yesterday my life changed. Some may say for the good, some may say for the bad, some may say ‘you just got a license’… I don’t like those people who say that. Such a HUGE moment in my life can only be described in a Hollywood way, and unfortunately no explosions were used so instead of an action flick, this has turned into a musical. But, there was no music.
10:33 a.m. Van Nuys DMV
The air is thick, babies are crying, women are fanning themselves with CA Driver Handbooks, a little mexican boy runs by knocking into me and dropping my passport. A James Franco look-alike drops down to pick up my passport, our eyes meet….
Man: I think you dropped this…wow you really are a beauty.
I blush and smile
Me: Well thank you…kids, how can you hate them when they lead you to moments like this…
Man: You can say that again
Me: Kids, how can you hate them when they lead you to moments like this…
Man: Wow, uggh, you actually said it again.
Me: Oh. Umm, yea I guess I did
I seductively walk closer and graze his arm
Man: You’re kinda creeping me out…
Me: What?! Typical man. You don’t know what you want. UGGHHHH whatever! SCREW YOU!
I storm out of line and nudge towards the front, I had an appointment, it was cool. Over head speakers read off numbers, finally my number is called.
Me: Good morning, I am here for a California License!
Lady in Purple: ughh huh
Diligently types in my info
Lady in Purple: Did you know there are 12 other Melissa Marin’s in Los Angles?!
Me: WHAT!?!? NOW I’LL NEVER BE AN ACTRESS!
Lady in Purple: I think you still have what it takes shuga.
Me: Awweee, thanks gurl.
More and more people enter the DMV, I’m getting restless. I walk into the exam room. sweat dripping down my neck. I slowly put my hair up in the sexy way that you see in the Brisk Iced Tea commercials or anything with Matthew McConaughey in it.
Kid: Sorry, I didn’t see you. Oh and you have some pink and blue stuff in your hair.
Kid runs off laughing and smiling because he passed his test.
Me: I KNOW!!! THEY”RE COOL FEATHERS!!!!!!
I read and mark, read and mark, sweat drips onto my test.
Me: This test is hard huh?
Supervisor: SHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!! NO TALKING!
Woman grabs my test and looks over it… X , X, X turn page over… X, X, X
Supervisor: You passed.
So… maybe my day didn’t go EXACTLY like that… but I needed to keep it interesting, and everyone knows that there has to be a love interest in every movie and a villain (kid who made fun of my feathers).
Well, I guess I’ll just wait 2-3 weeks for my California License!
