|My frocking ID helped me understand|
why paygrade and rank weren't
the same on the ID.
Back to the ID dilemma... Let me show you what I had.
|hehehehehehe.. this will always be my greatest ID photo.|
I felt like I needed to practice some faces. So I made faces at Teh Bear, and he screen shotted them so I could see what they looked like.... and so I'd have something to blog about.

I walked to the CAC lab with my sleeves down, because the day prior I had gotten sweaty walking across base in my blouse with the sleeves rolled up and decided it needed to be washed, and since I'm not a sleeve rolling master, they stayed unrolled. It was stupid hot on my walk, in the desert, across the entire base. I'm glad they gave me a bit to cool down so my face wouldn't be all flushed. I explained how much I was going to miss my old ID and they were kinda baffled. Who misses their ID? Then I told them it was all about the photo. At which point, the PS looked at the ID card, started laughing, and instantly understood. I mean scroll back up to that top picture.. You'd miss that too.
This ID photo only took 3 shots. The first time, my head was turned to the side too much. The 2nd shot, I looked too normal (yes, I just said that). And then the final shot looked like this:

There's a very undeniable "Teh Megan" head shake that certain people have. Generally, my leadership/parents. Like when I do something very Teh Megan, they just start shaking their head. Not in a disappointed way, but in a not-really-surprised-she-would-do-something-like-that type way. Teh Dad does it a lot. It's usually followed with, "Oh, Megifer." Which makes me laugh.
So, the ID dilemma has been solved. I'm glad that it wasn't a painful experience, other than the heat. It's rare to find an actual human being with a soul (in the military) that appreciate someone's desire to make other people laugh, even if it is just via an ID card.
