I have been dying to share some new found knowledge I picked up when we were camping a couple of weeks ago. I feel like such a dumb blonde but I have to share this in case there is just one other person out there who doesn't know this.
Did you know there is a little window on those fire starters that shows how much fuel is left in it? See the little "window" in the handle? Well, I did not know that until the electrician I sleep with pointed it out to me. We've had this fire starter for quite a few years now and for some reason it was not firing up every time we hit the button. This caused a little panic as we were getting ready to cook dinner on the cook stove, miles from any decent restaurant. I didn't have any extra "fire" with me so if it had not worked, there may have been chaos. Anybody who knows me, knows that when I'm ready to eat, there is a short window of time before I turn into a Tasmanian devil if not fed. Hypoglycemia is no joke, people! The symptom I am (and my poor husband) most familiar with is irritability (possible aggression). In other words, I'm a hungry bear.
I imagine there are lots of little things like this that I have no knowledge of ... yet. So, here's another one that I'll bet makes you get up and go to your car to check out.
Did you know the little picture of a gas pump on your gas gauge in your car indicates what side of the car your tank is on? I didn't know that until I read it in a very informational and silly email someone sent me last year.
Now to some of you, this may not matter. But, we've had four cars in 10 years and the gas tanks are never on the same side. This information is also useful if you happen to rent a car. This is particularly helpful when you pull into a gas station that only allows you to pull through in one direction. This can be total chaos if your tank is on the wrong side, know what I mean? I want to hear from you if you ran out to your car and looked at your gas gauge!
Okay. I'm so glad I got this information out of my head and onto the screen. I'd love to hear from anyone who has had similar "aha" moments! Or, am I the only one who didn't know these things?
