(I wish I had gotten a picture, but by the time I realized what I was seeing, it was too late.)

In general, I think the acronym LOL is overused. Seriously, how often do people *actually* laugh out loud when they type that? But today I saw something that did truly make me (and Ryan) LOL.

We drove into St. Louis today for a little (unsuccessful) shopping. While out there, we stopped to get gas, because gas is anywhere from 10 to 25 cents cheaper per gallon in Missouri than it is across the river in Illinois. Anyway, we were at a Shell station, and there just happens to be another Shell station on the diagonally opposite corner of the intersection. So we’re going past the other station, and I see the prices for regular, ($2.99), silver, (3.14), and premium (LOL).

Yes, the sign at the gas station actually had LOL listed as the price for premium gas. I think that’s an example of “when life hands you lemons, make lemonade.” That ingenuity made me glad we had given our business to Shell today (pretty sure both stations are owned by the same management, so glad the owner got his cut), and made the ever-rising price of gas a little easier to swallow!
