It's official

I gave my 2 weeks notice at the Chevron today. Went in a little early to talk to Mindy, the manager, and told her that working 2 jobs and going to school just wasn't working. She was real understanding about the whole thing - she realized that teaching and college weren't the things that were going to give, that it was Chevron that had to. Especially since with the roommates and student loans, (and the theoretical $2,500 raise that I won't believe the legislature really gave me until I see it), the extra money is not a necessity. The really good thing is that she said she's going to have the office keep me on the payroll because I told her that I would still like to work summers - I actually get a lot more done when I have something keeping me on a schedule as opposed to a whole lot of nothing for 2 months. I tell ya, it pays off being a good, reliable employee.
So, Writer, looks like we'll have more opportunities to cruise in the convertible in a couple weeks.........

Cool.
However, with my usual luck with men, this means it'll snow before the end of September.

I don't get it. There's a connection between snow and driving a convertible?

Do I get a ride in the convertible? I mean it is fun to ride the trax with you twice a week, but a girl always likes an invite :)

Ah, here we go again. There's always a younger woman. I will bow out gracefully.

Of course there is a connection between snow and convertibles! It's like the connection between Pizza & Diet Coke, McDonalds & Health Food, Utah Politics & Taxes -- it's a classic opposites attract situation.
