When Travel Is Measured In Trash Days

I don't expect everyone to relate to this.

After several decades of marriage... there comes a time that a partner's absence is measured not in days of travel but in number of trash days.

The other side of the coin... is that when you rely on that same partner to fill the car with gasoline, you're ready for the return even if you could use another trash day.

Luckily, the Prius is holding at 51+mpg, so I tolerated Tom's east coast trip very well. Still, 2 weeks is 2 weeks and I did have to fill the tank once. He'll get home tonight and be back on the job.
