I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason.

Thanks to a very pleasant and helpful DMV employee named "Dan," I have made an appointment to take my driver's license behind-the-wheel exam this Thursday afternoon. Observation: I could have gotten an appointment for the day after tomorrow to get my driver's license. I could not have made an appointment for the day after tomorrow to discuss my health and lifestyle with a doctor.
I passed my permit exam, and the DMV took a photo of me, back in March 2001. My current hair is only slightly shorter than the bob I had back then. A pleasing symmetry.
