Prius on the Brain

March 30, 2011


We have a conundrum around here. (That’s for you, Curt.) Lloyd was helping me hang up clothes in the basement and saw the box of detergent: “Does that say Ultra Prius!?”

See, we both have some different purchasing goals in the near-ish future. I want a recliner, he wants a car. Which of us do you think is being more reasonable? If you said me, then you are the smartest person I know. And you’re very attractive, too.

Lloyd feels that he is in the right, especially since – as he points out – his choice would come with two recliners.

What a hybrid.

    You’re both wrong. You should get a pony. It’s the best of both worlds: it’s relaxing and green (except for the methane emissions).

    The Prius scares me. I’ve almost been run over by one because they are silent.

    Perhaps you could buy two recliners. Build a little hood over the recliners, and you’re good to go. You get the recliners; Lloyd gets his car.

    More reasonable? Lauren. (sorry Lloyd)

    Have you ever been in a recliner Lloyd? I’ve been living in one for the past 11 years & it is the best! There’s nothing better than coming home from work & putting your feet up to watch TV & eat. And with a recliner…no more stiff necks. Whether you’re reading a book, working on a craft or watching TV, if you happen to doze off, you will awaken fresh & mobile…unlike when you fall asleep on a couch.

    Or you could get the car.
