Mom: Carded at Temperance Hall!

Tonight the doorman at Temperance Hall went the extra mile in checking ID’s. He carded my Mom.

This was after he carded me, and I am well past 21, and right before he carded my Mom’s retired boyfriend.

Neither of them are Georgetown freshmen by any stretch of the imagination. Both were as much flattered as flustered with the request.

I can understand popular Adams-Morgan bars having a “card everyone” policy, but in Petworth and the Social Security set?

    As I close in on 40 (something my darling girlfriend hates when I say) I find I am no longer flattered to be asked and am now just annoyed. I look even less like I am 21 than you do, which means it’s just foolish consistency forcing me to dig out my ID when nobody in the transaction thinks I look that young.

    I still consider it flattery, especially since I’ve stopped aging and am now perpetually 29.
