Envy: Greed’s Ugly Cousin March 21, 2014

I drive a Prius. I wouldn’t exactly say it’s a sexy car; the word “practical” comes to mind. It gets good mileage, is safe, and fits our family of four just fine in most cases.

Though he is only 10, he already makes a pretty strong case to my wife, explaining how much of the cost of the car will be offset by the savings in gas, and he was elated to find out it was recently rated the safest car on the road.
