I can't find my passport. This is very bad for two reasons.
One: I'm leaving for the US, from Duesseldorf, extremely early next Friday morning.
Two: That was the best ID photo that I have ever taken and I do not expect to see its like again, two children and 6 years later (and thirty pounds to the worse) and many, many sleep deprived years later.
On the plus side, since we live here in Berlin I will be able to get an emergency passport with very little trauma. On the negative, that passport will be good for only one year and I will need to replace it almost immediately with a permanent replacement so that I can get my German visa replaced, which will lead to more standing in line and monetary penalties for my carelessness.
