Wacky Wednesday

So today is Tuesday and I need gas so I pull into the gas station (that's where people with cars get gas) and I notice a sign proclaiming that 'WEDNESDAY IS WACKY WEDNESDAY! 6 CENTS OFF PER GALLON'

But it's Tuesday and I fill up....13 gallons. I realize at that moment that had I waited until WACKY WEDNESDAY I would have saved .78 cents.

78 cents.

That's wacky? 78 cents is WACKY?

Rip Taylor is wacky. Michael Jackson is wacky. Tom Cruise is wacky.

78 cents? Wacky? I don't think so.

At the same station they have 6 cents off on Monday's....they call that MANIC MONDAY.....which of course is just wacky.

POINT OF THE STORY?

None.

Actually, my uncle--Kosmos McGriff--had a car, but he always got gas at the town diner.

I forgot that in Canada you have the metric system.

So it's "gaullons" up there, right?

"So it's "gaullons" up there, right?"

Yuup, thaut's riught.

But I'm personally pretty mixed up...I know how far I live from work in kilometres but I only know my height and weight in feet/inches/pounds. One day I should probably pick a system and stick with it, eh?

Now...I'm assuming Lamont doesn't have a car either right? Silly-no-tv-owning-person!

Summary: Today is Tuesday!

As I am avoiding work, I just typed into Google, "Does Lamont Cranston drive a car?" I'll be DOGGONED. The seventh "google find" from the top is a No Oprah post titled, "The douche at the bank!" Gadzooks. And I thought only The Shadow would know...

Summary: Lamont does not have a car, a cell phone, children, a television that is properly hooked up, a pet squirrel or Red Sox season tickets.

And it's still Tuesday, isn't it?

Dammit.

I like turtles.

Lois: You're sure Lamont doesn't have a pet squirrel? With a yellow collar? Who sings opera?
