It Ain't Easy Being Green

It’s gray and rainy. The weather definitely fits my mood. I’m very sad about Cora, I’ve got a hangover, I’m hungry and this day is just dragging, dragging, dragging.

So, I’ll do the only thing I can - I’ll amuse myself.

Hubby pays attention to gas prices. A LOT of attention to be exact. And because we are together for our commutes, I pay attention to the gas prices, too. So, here’s the deal…

If the price per barrel keeps going d-o-w-n, why in the world does nobody seem bothered by the fact that gas prices keep going up? I DO NOT GET IT.

So, today, Hubby decided we are buying a Prius. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’ve got nothing against Priuseseses (I wonder of the plural of Prius is like the dice/die scenario. Prius/Priui, maybe?) and I think the whole hybrid/green thing is great. But, I love my BMW. Yes, it gets terrible gas mileage, but it looks great.

You wouldn’t think I’d be so picky because, once we realized what great MPG we were getting out of the Snowbeast, we pretty much started driving it all the time. I mean, if I can cruise around in the THIS (no longer with a duct taped mirror...because we finally just took the damn mirror off!) why would I have a problem with a Prius? Is it because it’s a hatchback? I don’t know. I just don’t know. There’s just something about it that I have an aversion to.

So, I’m going to suggest some Hybrid Alternatives to Hubby. But, I’ll be honest. My idea of being “green” is only using two paper towels in the restroom to dry my hands, instead of three.

I think if we buy a Prius, we also have to buy one of these for the bumper:

I'm with you sister. You don't seem the Prius type. At. All.
How about a Lexus SUV Hybrid? Very cute. AND NO BUMPER STICKERS.

Nah, you don't have to use the bumper stickers....there are many a cool hybrids out there to choose from.
The bumper stickers would be a funny choice though.

P.S. I wish you lived closer to OK as well. Sad times.
