Pain at the Pump
Just a thought from 14 March 2003 about .
I filled up Flo (my '91 Honda Civic) last night. I drive so little, I only do this every couple months. It was only after I'd already swiped my credit card and started pumping that I noticed the price: $2.29/gallon.
I considered stopping at half-tank to save money. I could go for a couple weeks on half a tank, I thought.
But then I remembered: In a couple weeks, we'll be bombing Iraq.
I filled the whole tank.
(And if you think it's sad that I'm thinking about war at the pump, well, that's where our leaders are thinking about it, too. And you're right, that is sad.)
This section is called Just a Thought. It's a blog where I post little pieces of what I'm thinking about at the moment. This page is an individual entry called “Pain at the Pump” that I wrote on 14 March 2003.
