Gas Prices & Cigarettes


This is not my story, but it should be.  ‘Cause it’s so ridiculously funny.  Falon, our friend and former nanny, is the owner of this story.  No, she is not a “former” nanny, because we let her go.  How insane would that have been?  And, she is not a “former” because Anna had licked her face that one last time.  Falon probably encouraged such unacceptably social behavior.  Falon found love, moved to Tulsa and subsequently ripped our little hearts out – leaving me with two children who think AC/DC sings the national anthem. 

Before I chase any more rabbits about how good life used to be with our Falon, here is her story as told by Falon herself. 

Wednesday morning, I made my daily stop at the Gas Station I call my own.  With gas prices sky high it is normal to hear at least one “gas price” comment.  Wednesday was no exception.  It was however one of the funniest I have heard.  There were two women in line in front of me talking about gas prices.  Here is how the conversation went:

Woman 1:  “Gas prices are &*$%(@ high!”

Woman 2:  “I know.  It just p$%*@ me off.”

Woman 1:  “They need to do something about it.  I don’t have any money for food and stuff!”

**another 30 to 45 seconds of gas price comments**

Cashier:   “What can I get you today?”

Woman 1:  “I need 8 dollars on pump 3, a carton of camel lights, and 10 scratch-offs.”

Everything is relative, eh? 

Oh, Falon your stories are funny.  Just think how much funnier they would be if you headed back south.  Your 401K plan would include a lifetime membership to the Oklahoma City Zoo.  How about passes to the Science Museum for bonuses?  Life could be grand again.

  1. Funny thought! LOL! ridiculous, but there are those that have priorities out of whack!! lol

  2. Falon

    Did you say the zoo? I’ll give my 2 wk, put my house on the market and be there in a couple of weeks!

    p.s. You need to send me those children. We haven’t had our fair share of quality time.

  3. Lynn, I really can’t judge. Sometimes, I prefer new shoes to dinner.

    Falon, you read me right. The zoo. I know, I know. Can the Takles get any more generous? As for the children, they are on the public transport and should arrive in a couple of hours.

  4. ha ha, yes, you are right, I had in my thoughts a time or two, when the person i thought about, had 2 children, no diapers, then bought cigarettes.

    has falon seen the hanson brothers out and about in tulsa? oh gosh i hope so. that would be like 6 degrees of kevin bacon. but, not kevin – hanson.

  6. Michel, I’m pretty sure that seeking out Hanson is top priority for Falon. I’ll ask her for the latest scoop.

  7. Funny as that story sounded they probably believed they had no money for food. Sad
