full tank

I got to experience the last vestige of the Great Imaginary Gasoline Crisis.  I woke at 6 a.m. and read of a gas station nearby with gasoline, amid others sold out. I got there a couple of minutes later. There were long lines. Then the station, a Racetrac,  ran out of gas. An employee waved his arms in the dark--no more no more.

My wife and I drove to work together today. We dropped her at her office, and I drove her car to my office. Later, she caught an Uber home because her work let out early.  In contrast, I worked until 6 or so. We went to dinner at Spazo and sat outside. I had the salmon. My wife had a pasta.

I finally got gasoline afterward. The first place I went was out of gasoline. But the next place had gasoline and no waiting. I was glad to be able to remedy my near-empty tank. The 7-11 in question is one where I often stop for gas. Usually, the pumps are anything but cronuwded.

This was a busy work week. Tonight I watched a great PBS documentary on the director Richard Linklater.

Breakfast: cereal and skim milk
Lunch: one slice cheese pizza and a salad
Dinner: salmon with almonds and chia, quinoa with a lobster sauce, vegetables, salad,
