You know how genius type people with huge IQs can sometimes be deficient in day to day common sense, like the absent minded professor? Well, that's me, except for the genius part. Today on my way home from my parents house I let my car run out of gas. I planned to stop for gas and lunch. We did get lunch.
I learned two things today. One, my car can go roughly 200 miles on a quarter of a tank of gas. And two, if you stack a couple of McDonald's cups it makes a suitable potty chair and will support a four year old boy who is too scared to venture into the scary forest.
I also had to apologize to the two children with me in the car. Letting the car run out of gas is really bad parenting. On the other hand, thank God for AAA.
