Ever ran out of gas in your vehicle?
Only once. My kids were little, and I had three of them in the car with me. The car conked out about a mile from home. This was in the 80s, long before cell phones. I took the stroller out of trunk, and the kids and I walked to my neighbor’s house. She kindly let me borrow a gas can, drove me to the gas station, and then to my car.
