    I wish I could. I live on one side of a metro area and work on the other. Once we get our coronavirus check we plan on getting something with better mileage.

    I'm working harder than ever, like Ginger dancing with Fred "backwards, with heels."

    We can change the title, if you'd like.

    In all fairness, I'm sure you also didn't anticipate how literally some people would take that title (like one user hijacking it to express his hope that the elections would get delayed/canceled).

    Thank you, but no. That's a mark of shame that I need to own.

    Understood - but, again, who knew it would become such a monster?

    Because the sprawl keeps getting closer, my commute time had ballooned so I traded up to a hybrid. 45 mpg. Then I changed my schedule to teach at the closer campus, about a mile away.

    After the change, my weekly mileage dropped from 250 miles a week to less than 50, and I was filling up every three months or so.

    I'm good until next year, now.

    I put in an order for home delivery this morning and was told I wouldn't get my order until NEXT Thursday because they are really backed up with so many orders.

    The other thing is that you should not go to the store until you have used the restroom, or you may be compelled to hoard TP.

    When you get my age, you never miss an opportunity to go to the head.
