On Being a Prius Owner (guest post by my husband)
My husband wrote this as a post on his blog but I thought it was so hilarious I decided to guest post it here. Enjoy! I did! ;-) Things that have disappointed me “so-far” about being a Prius owner: • People do not applaud when I enter a building. • Starkbucks does not give me free soy lattés. • Being an elitist is lonely • Savings of only 19 cents a month on car insurance. • I cannot find my car in an Ikea parking lot. • Al Gore still will not accept my phone calls. • Nobody cares that I’m an eco-snob. • No key??? It comes with a smart key which is actually called a fob. I fear all things called “fob”. • Not sure if the Prius is Scientology approved (read this). • As of yet to have my name added to the celebrity hybrid drivers list. • Bumper sticker confusion? Do I place an Apple logo, Vegans are Cool, Enlighten-Up, Coexist on my Prius’s backside?
Things that I love about being a Prius owner “so-far”: • It’s the coolest iPod accessory ever. • You don’t have to plug your Prius into to your computer to recharge the batteries. • I feel closer to Barak Obama. • Oprah hugged me. • My Moleskin notebook looks extra cool sitting on the passenger seat. • Jesus loves me more – this I know is true….
