$2.99 a gallon read it and weep

That's all it took to steal the dh's thunder. He called on the way home last night, right in the middle of me trying to get through the dd's reading lesson. Very irritating since we were already running late. And you know how hard it is getting her through her reading lessons that late at night. He was trying to brag about finding gas at $3.06/gallon. He was all like "Guess what I just paid for gas? $3.06" In a neeneerneeneer type voice. And I so vainly replied "Yeah well I got it for $2.99" Oh yeah I saw the green through the phone. Yup he was a nice shade of chartreuse and I could tell over that phone line. He was down right indignant complaining that I stole his thunder, he even wanted to know where. Like I would make it up or something. Puhlease people. When was the last time ya'll saw gas at $2.99 a gallon? Do you even remember it at that price? I sure as hell don't. Crying shame too. Well there are a scant few reasons to live in Texas, the school systems (in my neighborhood at least) and the price of gas (here, not in Galviston). I managed to fill my tank for a record low price and I drive a 4Runner. It's been awhile peeps let me tell you, it's been awhile.

Love that you stole his thunder! It's about $3.38 here. I remember when it was $1.89 easily. **sigh**

Oh my goodness no woman, not even free gas would get me to move to OK. We Californians are terrified of tornadoes. Give me an earthquake any day!
