Have I died?

I often ask myself if I've died on gone to hell. It's pessimistic, true, but I sometimes can't help but wonder. As I've mentioned ad nauseam, work is a nightmare lately but as Dory reminds us I "Just keep swimming." It's surprisingly good advise and can really help in the middle of a bad day. Best of all, if you say it out loud, it confuses the grown ups.

Until tonight, that is. Tonight as I filled up my tank and saw this staring back at me...

for the first time in ages, I asked myself if I'd died and gone to heaven. I could be wrong but I don't think I've seen gas in the one-fifties since college. It was a beautiful sight indeed.

I hope you're evening has been as lovely as mine.

Actually, the average price for a gallon of gas in (dare I mention the year?) 1988 was about 90 cents per gallon. Still, it seemed miraculous to me last week when I filled my tank for less than 20 bucks.

I never thought it would drop this low again. I remember filling up my little VW bug for ten dollars back in college. Don't think we'll ever see that again, but it is definitely better than it was!
