9. when i was a teenager,
i put gas in my dad's car. it was 33 cents a gallon. i filled up for $3.30.

when i got home, he asked me how much the gas was. i told him 33 cents. he was FURIOUS! that was TOO EXPENSIVE! i look back on that these days and laugh.

but about the same time we laughed about bread being $3 a loaf some day! i used to be able to buy a loaf of bread, a stick of butter and a dozen eggs for less than a buck......
