I Win

I'm a competitive person. (I know. You're shocked.) I cannot confirm or deny how this sometimes may impact how often DH and I play a game together.

I even make up games to play by myself. Can I run faster than I did yesterday? Can I finish this project in under a certain time period?

It's all so I can win.

Look at the clock when it's 1:11? I win.

Peel an apple in one long strip? I win.

Match all the socks together? I win.

So when I saw that Dharma has a gauge that tells you the gas mileage you're currently getting - as you drive - I couldn't help but start a competition with myself to see how long I could keep it close to 30 mpg.

It's an obsession. Clearly, it doesn't take much to amuse me.

And she tells you the gas mileage you get out of a tank of gas. Can I get better gas mileage out of this tank than the last tank?

Yes? Then I win.
