excitement

We left at 11am to ride at Chicopee today. Around 11:45 Eddie is squirming in his seat because the needle on the gas gauge has been under "E" for a few miles...but he's holding out for cheap gas. He was going to hold out for the I-985 exit but as we were approaching Hwy 317 I politely suggested he exit NOW and go to the Race-Trac for cheap gas. So, being the good husband he is, he cuts across three lanes of traffic to make the exit. Then he goes on to bi+ch about how the Race-Trac is 0.5 miles out of the way...we're wasting time...it would have been "much more exciting" to see if we could make it all the way to I-985....blah blah.

We were both happy to see gas at $1.57 at the Race-Trac when we got there! This was exciting enough and I was releived that we had made it there without running out of gas. Then Eddie mumbles something about forgetting his wallet. UM...WHAT? I didn't bring mine either!!! Panic. Or....maybe a little "too much excitement". I'm scrounging the car for change...none. I know my credit card # by heart but we don't think the gas station will go for that. I pulled out the checks I was going to deposit in hopes that we could somehow get cash from those...we just needed to find a SunTrust.

Eddie pulls out his trusty iphone again and luckily there was a SunTrust 1/4 mile away!!! We drove there, I went in to make the deposits and get cash back..then she asked me for my I.D. in order to get the cash.

So, I proceeded to tell her about my funny story..not funny as in "haha" but funny as in....no really, I am SCREWED without this cash. She asked me a million and one questions, had me sign my signature, and finally she let me have my $20. Phew.

So, Code Red and Hodge....be happy you didn't get the call from us this morning, because that is what I was about to do! :)

The rest of the day was pretty uneventful in comparison to that Race-Trac thing so that's about it for today!

I LOVE the gas gauge game! What mileage is it when the light comes on + how many gallons are left when the light comes on + what's the average mileage for the type of driving you are doing + 5 miles = How far I'm going to try to go. And then when you do that fill up is it the most that you put in the tank ever? Good times.
