Notaries Do It with Rubber and InkRecently I was able to check one item off my bucket list.
I joined the hallowed ranks of those unsung heroes, the proud yet humble public servants who can verify that you are who you say you are.
You can't identify a notary public by looking at one. They might be in line behind you at the grocery store or sit next to you in a movie theater and you wouldn't even know it. But then they pull out their stamp, and things get real.
Not just anyone can become a notary public. You have to fill out an application, not be a felon, and send $10 to Jesse White of the Jesse White Tumblers.
Andrew calls me a Nerdary Public, but I know it's just because he's intimidated by my position. It doesn't bother me because I'm looking forward to notarizing the public for the next 4 years.
