I wanted to get my license renewed on the internet - it refused to let me for some unknown reason - so I went to the office - and I was told that I am not an American citizen ??? - so they told me to go and get a birth certificate - the vital statics office was very close - so I get there and find out that I am a female named Howell ??? my twin sister is on the certificate with the correct information -- but the Baby A is named Howell - so I had to go to the Battleship Texas to get my older sister's signature to get the information changed on the birth certificate - she volunteers there and she was on her job - ( wish I had a Stanley) -
I was questioned about when I left the country - only in high school when I lived with a family in Vera Cruz during the summers -
then I was asked when I planned on leaving the country again --- only if I go visit Ang or Kimmie - which may never happen - but I can hope

Huh thats weird. And you already had a license and this never happend before?  They couldn't explain that?  Weird.  Seeing as how you are a twin and your twin has the right info they would be able to fix it.   

The things we go through.  Well now you have a story you can tell over and over again. *smile*
