`Til the Sheen Wears Off

Did you hear about Charlie Sheen?  If not, then you are most likely dead and should not be reading this.  My television is dedicated to him.  My subscription magazines include articles about him. My car radio is "All Charlie, All the Time."  If you Google "Charlie Sheen" you will get 139,000,000 hits.   There is no escape.

Yesterday I was shopping at Mal-Wart (I changed the name of store to keep its identity a secret.) when I overheard two young ladies talking.  The first girl was telling the second about how some fellow from the night before was constantly hitting on her even though she had made her disinterest very well known.  The second girl said, "Who'd he think he was, Charlie Sheen?"

Speaking of secrets, I heard on the news Friday that the USAF launched a Top-Secret Space Plane.  I was waiting for the reporter to put a finger to her lips and go "Shhhh.  Don't tell anyone."  This unmanned flight will orbit the earth for nine months before returning.  Hmm, they said "unmanned" not "unwomanned."   Plus, nine months is a gestation period.  Could this be some form of "Rosemary's Baby" meets "Alien?"

Looks like Qaddafi is successfully fighting the rebels.  I hope those rebels got something else up their sleeve.  I hate these gas prices, but it may be worth it if it causes Muammar to say bye-bye.  Yet, for the sake of my wallet, lets get this thing settled quick.  $3.59 a gallon is enough.  Please, don't go any higher.

Still, when compared to bottled water, gasoline is the least expensive.  At $1.50 per bottle, water would cost eight dollars a gallon.  This is for Propel.  I do not know other water brands.  If you needed nasal spray to run your car, you would be paying $748.00 per gallon.  If someone came up with a milk powered car, then it would be anywhere from $2 to $3.50 a gallon, depending where you buy your milk.  I could fill my car for about twenty bucks.  Just think, while your milk powered vehicle moos along contentedly, you could use the exhaust to make lattes.  Now that is what I call multi-tasking.
