I just realized how much gas costs. I know, I know. Have I been living under a rock? I mean, yes, I have seen the price creep up and now it takes about $60 to fill my coupe's tank up. I got that. But yesterday, while I was waiting for an appointment, I went through my purse and found a $10 coupon for DSW that expired yesterday. I thought, well I guess I'll just go after my appointment. Then I realized the closest DSW to me was about 25-28 miles away, or 20 miles but through a TON of rush hour traffic. My coupe gets about 25 mpg overall, with about 60-70% highway driving. I realized it would cost me about $8 in gas to get there and back to use my $10 coupon. Wow. Holy crap.
Which is more amazing-that I just now realized how much it takes to go somewhere or that I just talked myself out of buying a pair of shoes???
