Watching some movie that TiVo recorded today. Just the Wife and me.
First commercial break happens, and there's a commercial for a Honda Civic. At least, I think that's what it was for.
Had the "Odd Couple" music paying. One guy was driving around in his Civic, picking up trash that another driver was tossing out. And, at the end, he returned all the trash he had collected. And that's when we realized it was a car commercial.
For a hybrid car. The Civic.
The Wife turned to me and said, "You think you'd want to drive one of those? A hybrid?"
I looked slowly over at her.
She added, "For the gas mileage?"
And I asked her, "You're asking me that? And you drive what?"
Now, just so you know, I drive a Chevrolet. An older car. A '99 Lumina. They don't make those anymore. But I like it. Have put nearly 160,000 miles on it. And, of course, it's paid for. Been so for a while.
And it gets between 25-30 miles per gallon, depending on how much highway driving I do.
The Wife? She drives some big-ass Ford truck. An F-150. About 4 years old. And it'll be paid for in two months.
And she gets about 10-12 miles per gallon, depending on how much highway driving she does.
And she wants to know if I want to drive a hybrid.
She stuttered and stammered for a bit when I asked her, "You're asking me that? And you drive what?"
Now, this isn't to say that I won't get a hybrid.
It's just that I'm not sure about when she's going to get that mote out of her eye.
