Take dead organisms and add heat, pressure and time — lots of time — and you’ve got oil. Sometimes, however, you come across a sorry substitute. When that happens — every 3,000 miles, three months or four letters — you should change your oil.
That headline opener petro-fies me. The writer made like a large storage container for viscous liquid derived from petroleum and tanked.
It is my understanding that one should not rig oil with a fourth letter.
An initial l, like water, is vital for life, forms lakes and can be found in glaciers, but a second l, like water, doesn’t mix with oil.
Including two wasn’t a slick idea. I’m agitated. I’ll calm down, I’m sure, when oil is said and done.
So let’s get it done. Try removing the last letter.
We’ve struck oil.
