You get the gas face

You know how it's smart to put more gas in the car when it gets to a quarter-tank left? Yeah, I never do that. I do it a little while after the light comes on. I forget that this isn't the way things are done; once we were coming home from a big trip -- maybe Killington last year? -- and there hadn't been a gas station for a while, and the light went on, and Mitch seemed a little concerned, and I was like, "oh, don't worry about it, mine goes on all the time," and he said that his had only gone on, like, three times or something. Ha.

So today I cut it as close as I think I ever have. The light's been on for a few days, actually, but I was just bumming around the neighborhood, so I figured I'd get to it when I got to it. When I went to start it at lunch, it took me a couple of key turns. Oops. But there's a gas station right by my work, and though it took a little urging to get going, it didn't sputter or anything. I keep my little book (I don't know why, I never do anything with the information), and the last time I got gas was May 6. May 6th! And I drove a hundred miles on Tuesday, to go to and from that interview.

So it was only 13.44 gallons! I was almost disappointed. I was hoping for 13.9 or some shit.

On the one hand, this isn't a very interesting post. On another, it seems like the kind to generate a ridiculous number of comments. On yet another, now that I've said that, it probably won't happen after all.
