Somethin' for nothin'

Did you ever get somethin' for nothin'? That was my experience today. I parked in a parking lot in downtown Newark. I think the rate is 50 cents an hour. As I was pulling out of the lot, the attendant said, "Are you from Oklahoma?" (She saw the license plate on the front of my truck.) When I assured her that I was a born-and-bred Sooner, she let me leave the lot for free. Seriously.

As that great theologian Merle Haggard once said, "I'm proud to be an Okie from Muskogee!" Alright, so I am not from Muskogee, but I do know that I parked for free today!

Somethin' for nothin' is a good deal almost every time.
