Expensive tomatoes and tomahtoes
Well spotted (pardon the British phrase), Tinman57. I had intentionally left "git" and "smartarse" in, because I wanted to retain some British flavor, or flavour, if you will. And I reckoned (British)/figured (American) that American readers would get those. I'll continue to let them stand. However, shame on me: How could I possibly have referred to American's cherished "gasoline" as anything other than that? Petrol is indeed gasoline in the land of the free and the home of the brave. Or, to apply another definition: Petrol - fuel that powers motor vehicles and that costs on average $3.70 per gallon in the U.S., and $8.20 per gallon in the UK. I've now changed the word accordingly in the story. Please forgive the original un-American oversight!
