I went to renew my Washington fishing license, and asked the girl at the sporting goods store, Kate, if she could also renew my marriage license since I had been fishing so much. Kate looked under the counter. "We don't have that form" she said.
"How long is my marriage license good?" I asked.
"How am I supposed to know?" she asked. "I'm not from around here."
