Stupid Tuesday!

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?

Funny! I have been running on the edge of doing this very thing for a month now. I had to "downsize" my vehicle. My former mode of transportation would get me a full week on a tank of gas. My new vehicle has a much smaller gas tank. I keep forgetting this detail. We live out in the country. I haven't run out yet, but have had a couple very close calls already.

Okay, since you made it to a gas station I can laugh.... ROFL!!!

Listen, I've decided that I'm at an age where nothing dumb I do surprises me.

Glad you made it to the gas station. I have a friend who does that all the time.
