A Lowly Adventure
So, since we're having an outrageous heat wave, and I wanted to stay in air-conditioning as much as possible – including inside my car – I set the GPS for a Best Buy in the next town north, about 20 miles away.
I blame it on the heat, but I failed to remember I was a bit low on gas, until that is I was 1 mile from my destination and pushing on the gas pedal with no response. Aargh! It's been forever since I ran out of gas, and I felt like a irresponsible teenager.
I demonstrated my dramatic side on the phone to the roadside assistance dispatcher, all but saying I was about to die in the heat. The wait could've been much worse, there was even a breeze, but I was so relieved when the roadside assistance arrive to save the day with a gas can.
Apparently, I was bored and needed to create some adventure in my life, but this was really the bottom of the barrel in terms of adventures!
