For the record....

I fall into the second category in Brad DeLong's typology of Prius drivers: "I have spent a fortune on a fuel-efficient car, and now I am going to get some of that back by saving time!"

Of course, I'm not the one who's apparently blogging and driving at the same time.

I spent the last week babysitting a Prius, courtesy of my friend who was out of town and thought I could put better use to it than the street in front of his apartment could.

As I told my Prius-owning friend when I picked him up from the airport today, I am eternally grateful, for now my Echo-driving boyfriend has given up his plans of a Subaru Forester hybrid as his next car, and now wants a Prius instead.

I'm very happy with this new Prius desire. I sure as h*ll don't want something that looks as parental as a Forester (it even comes in an LLBean edition!).

Sadly, from my perspective, a Prius doesn't scream the exact opposite of "I am a breeder!", which I fear is the Forester's message.

Doesn't this post fall under McArdle's "full disclosure" bit?
