Yes, gentle reader, today is Stupid Tuesday and I am the 1st Runner Up! You see this morning after I dropped my boys off at school, I was going to do some errands before going home. As I was driving, my car started to sputter, which when you drive a 17 year old car kind of makes you panic and immediately imagine major $$$ for repairs and then I noticed.....wait for it.....that I was out of gas.
You read that right, I was out of gas! How old am I????
Well, fortunately for me, I was able to run just one (pink) traffic light because if I stopped I knew I wasn't starting again- well, it was an emergency - and managed to get to a gas station. Barely, as the car literally died as I came to a stop beside the gas pump. The very fact that I actually got it to a gas station only makes me a Runner Up in the Stupid Tuesday contest....anyone else ready to take the Grand Prize?
