Some things I just don’t get.

Hi, how are things in your world?  Everything is pretty cool here.  We’ve had quite a bit of rain this weekend so things have cooled down a bit.  Why do we say cooled down and warmed up?  Is it because warm air rises?  If this is always true, why do you see snow on top of a mountain but not down in the valley beside it.  Why do we say shut up and quiet down?  Isn’t that contradictory?  And while we are on the subject, why do gas stations sell mulch?  I mean, is there some connection between gas and mulch that I don’t know about?  Do they make mulch out of used motor oil?  Or maybe its because they want to offer yet another necessary ingredient to make our stop at the convenience store complete.  ( I have $97.62 on pump number 4, 7 krispy kreme doughnuts, a 62 oz gulp (diet of course), 2 packs of gum, a current copy of auto trader, a mini bag of chips, and oh yeah, 3 bags of mulch.)  I still don’t get it.

  1. The part that I don’t get is why the pump has to shut off at $50 or $75!!! If they are going to have gas prices where they are at then maybe they should let us pump a little bit more at a time!! Instead of pumping $75 then starting the pump again and pumping until the tanks full!! OHH they just want us to look at the mulch piles a little longer, cause they are piled to high to see out to the road!!!
