Mamacita says: When I was a little girl, Dad would often wink at Mom after dinner, and say “Now I’ve got gas; I guess I’ll go out and sit on the car.” And she would roll her eyes and say that HER family didn’t talk like that.
And I would be all happy because, hey. Free gas for the car. Maybe we can get ice cream with the gas money now. I was glad MY family talked like that. Free was good.
I am more than a little bit embarrassed to tell you that I was in the fifth grade before I realized what he was talking about.
