I have been running non-stop since yesterday. Well, not actually “running”…more like DRIVING. Sometimes I amaze myself with all I accomplish. Other times I’m just flat out LAZY.
So anyway, I’ve been hearing all this talk about ridiculous gas prices. I hadn’t paid it much mind, because my new car came with a full tank (and that’s a LOT of gas…like 25 gallons). Well, I stopped by my local gas station to find this:
I walked into the gas station and asked for $70 worth of gas. At this price, it takes $126 to fill my gas tank…ugh! Now that wouldn’t be the worst. Notice how many miles I get to the gallon now?
I really shouldn’t complain…I mean, my last car only got 9 mpg, so I’m ahead, right? When paying for my gas, I overheard a young girl asking for $13 of gas. WTH? $13? Who puts $13 of gas in their car? I mean, at least make it an even $20 worth. Unfortunately, the last time I put $20 in my car was 10 years ago. Maybe longer. $20 wouldn’t even get me back and forth to the supermarket.
Now let’s talk shoes…just in case any of you ditch the car and decide to walk. Unlike many of my shoe whore friends, I don’t need a million pair of shoes. I don’t drool over Manolos, but I do prefer all leather shoes. They don’t need to be glamorous. The only requirement is they have to be comfortable.
So being that I only have a dozen pair of shoes, I decided to visit Piperline and Zappos to see if anything caught my eye. I ended up purchasing 2 pairs of Tahari patent leather sandals. I love everything Tahari…most of my wardrobe consists of this brand. So when the sandals arrived, I eagerly put a pair on. Unfortunately, it was no more than an hour before I had blisters on my most of my toes. Back they go. Darn!!! No wonder I never buy patent leather. It’s never comfortable.
Which brings me to these:
How the heck would one manage to walk in these? They are unique, but really…KWIM? Just looking at these hurt!
Have a lovely evening…
