Lunch = Vittles and Gas

I took a later lunch today so that my co-workers could tend to their "more important than mine" lives.

Sigh.

I perused the local eateries and finally settled on - Taco Bell.   I think I have a death wish or something. 

Anyway - I order my Taquitos - which kinda ended up tasting like a grilled cheese sandwich rolled up, with chicken, and Sour Cream - and decide to go pump gas.

Once I figure out which side my tank is on (I can never remember!) I pull out my brand spankin' new American Express card (thanks, babycakeshead!) and start the pump.

$45.23!!!!!

After I regain consciousness - my first thought is this:  I may have to start turning tricks for petrol.

I can see my sign now: 

WILL PULL A RABBIT OUT OF A HAT FOR GAS MONEY!

Hi Holly, back from Prague now! As I have said before its £1.05 a litre in the UK, that's nearly $2, so imagine how we feel? Just as well i'ts so cheap over in the US with all you guys whizzing about in your gas guzzlers, not a honda bug in sight. You would soon start driving smaller cars if you paid our gas prices!

You are a great writer!
Ever thought about going into the field of journalism?

It takes $68.. to fill up my tank!!!! I drive more careful now and not so many quick trips anymore.

Think about journalism...you are a natural!
