Today, I doubled the value of my car. I filled the gas tank. Gas at the AAFES station on post was $3.16 a gallon. Insane. Luckily, I only have to fill up once a month. But still, that was 50 cents a gallon more than last month. What happened to all that oil the liberals say we invade Iraq to get?
I also went to the dentist today. As Dr. Choi reminded me, I hadn’t been for two years. Yeah, my dental hygiene could definitely use some work. It was a little embarrassing to be chided in broken English by a cute hygienist about regular flossing.
I went today because one of my front teeth chipped and it felt like a tooth shard was embedded in my gum. Floss and vigorous brushing wouldn’t dislodge it and it was driving me freakin’ mad. So, I got a good cleaning and the tooth repaired and my wallet lightened to the tune of W200,000. That’s about the same as my bi-weekly bar tab.
And finally, I was reading The Onion today and came upon this article that really hit home for me.
That could have been me! Lord knows, LTG is every bit as insipid. Except without the links and commenters. Oh well, did I mention I’ve got gas?
