I love her but:
She is a gasoline alcoholic.
She takes up twice as much room as most cars on the road and on my driveway.
She costs double and triple to maintain.
And I get some dirty looks in San Fran, land of the Pruis.
I wanted to get a license plate frame that said "I eat Prius for breakfast" and then have the license plate say "8 PRIUS" But I really don't like my beast being vandalized when I park her by irate enviro-friendly drivers.
But I love her.
I have 2 kids and each one gets a row when we travel. That alone pays for her tenfold in my mind.
I don't drive her much either. I am a WAHM, my commute is to the next room.
Since I love her, I washed her this morning. She's all sparkly and pretty now.
I washed the beast.
