pocket change -

I lost my credit card, which is fine, I just can't buy stuff. Anyway, I went to lunch downtown today and enjoyed myself so much that I stayed longer than I should have. As I began a 90-minute drive to Johnson City, I thought I should gas up before leaving. Then remembered, "Ah yes, you are running late, and also you have no accessible money." With half a tank to go, I thought I might just make it. But it was slightly less than half a tank. After 10 miles of the gas light pulsing on and off, I pulled into a Hess in East Syracuse, round up as much of you as I could find, and asked the service station guy to put $4.26 worth of gas into my car. Embarrassing.
