Default Thougt I killed my little mule today!

I filled up yesterday and checked the oil, it was a little low, so I bought a quart and half of it brought it up to level.
Well, I was driving it today and I start hearing this clicking sounding like I am really low on oil, but then it goes away, I am thinking I must be hearing things. later, I hear it again, so I d better check, open the hood, there is oil everywhere, cept in the engine. I forgot to put the cap on!
I put my half a quart in and the noise stops right away, hit the service station, got 2 quarts, and it took both full bottles to bring it up to level.

Seems to run fine now, hope I didn't do too much damage! f'n moron!
