Gas or Gold...

Below is a post from August of last year, the peak of the Gas insanity. I recently paid $2.59, it's starting again. So i thought this was the perfect oldie but goodie for the week.

This post is also linked to my "Gas Can" on the right. You can drop a buck or 2 in there to help me get from place to place. Just thought i would try out the tip jar feature on my new blog, why not!

enjoy...

Gas or Gold...

Well i supose this is the most common blog topic in America right now but i am going to go with it one more time. What the freak is going on!!! I am going broke just trying to get from place to place. $2.65 here in good ole Freeport IL. I am scared to go into the city, i can only imagine what it costs in down town Chicago!

Well gas is consuming my nightmares these days, i suppose tonight it will go something like this...

I am at a gas station and i slide my credit card in the slot to pay for gas. The next thing i know Gold start falling out of the sky. It starts as dust and i wonder, "what is going on". Then the gold start to fall in little chucks, i think, "owe that kinda hurts". Next thing i know nuggets of gold start falling out of the sky, i begin to bleed because i am getting impaled by the nuggets of gold. I scream out (in pain), "i was just trying to get some gas". I hear a deep, loud voice come out of thin air and say, "but you paid for gold..." Next thing i know is i look up and see a gold brick falling out of the sky right at my head and then i wake in a cold sweet.

Scary eh'

Peace
