Your word of the day is: awkward.
Woke up to snow again, just in case I might have forgotten it was still February. A lot of it has melted away already, but still.
Managed to get a few errands done anyway, including filling up the car's gas tank across the border. It's a little inconvenient, and I'm not a huge fan of the US border guards, but paying 97 cents per liter instead of $1.32 per liter is hard to say no to.
"Oh! Oh, hi, Mrs. Martinez. I thought today was your day off."
"It was, but I decided to pick up an extra shift this week to help pay some bills. How are you doing?"
"Fine. I'm good. Thanks."
"And my daughter?"
"Tammy's good too. Great, really. I'm a lucky guy."
"I'm glad you realize that."
"I do! Totally. So, uh, what do I owe you?"
"Fourteen dollars and seventy-five cents."
"Jeez, they ain't cheap, huh?"
"No, Arnold, pregnancy tests are not cheap."
