I thought I would try and save a bit a gas by drafting behind this big truck.

I was going uphill at 25 km per hour in 3rd gear.

I bet I saved at least enough gas for 2 or 3 run ons!


note: Formula One sounds like a baby food to me.

double note: I finally got my left turn signal fixed! I was getting kind of tired of turning right all the time.

triple note: The turn signal problem was bad, but when I had no brake lights was a lot worse.

quadruple note: Is the plural of formula “formuli“?   or is that just for spatula/spatuli?

quintuple note: I think my van isn’t in the same equation as formula one.

sextuple note: Is it “Formula” or “For Moola“?  $$$$

septuple note: Racing went down hill after The Wacky Racers.

  1. You don’t need any comments. You’ve made them yourself. Well done you!

    S. Le: I’m glad you liked it. (smiley face)

  2. It’s “formulae” and “spatulae.” I can’t imagine you didn’t know it, but I can’t figure out what the joke was so I am just throwing my hands up in confusion (before and after typing this comment).

    pannonica: I probably knew about formulae at one time, but I think you are messing with my head about spatulae (unless you are referring to the pads on a gecko’s feet). Spatula probably doesn’t have a plural because … really … who would have more than one. (smiley face)

  3. It’s a perfectly cromulent plural in the world of science (and not just for geckonid feet), where I spend some of my non-blogging free time (i.e. w*rk).

    pannonica: I sit and stand corrected. I know you are telling me the truth because only scientists mad or a little angry would use the word “cromulent”. I’m not even going to look that one up in the dictionary: I have images of crumblely pastry in my mind and need to get to a bakery.

  4. Wacky Racers! I forgot about that. What if Formula One racers had names like Dick Dastardly, Rufus Ruffcut, and Blubber Bear?

    Back to hearses…how about the Gruesome Twosome?
