Passport lady: which photo do you want me to use?
Me: I don’t mind. I don’t like any of them.
<Passport lady picks up photo>
<Passport lady waves it at me>
Passport lady: In 10 years time when I see you again, you will be telling me that you love this and you don’t want to let it go.
This photo you hate today, you will look back and love.
And you will hand me a new photo. And tell me you hate it.
Nice point, well made ;-)
