For all dads - a Father's Day 160



Fingers grip the wheel.
“Vroom vroom!” fills the air.
She sighs, announcing softly:
“you can’t sit in the driveway forever
no matter how much gas mileage you save.”

------------------------------------------
This Sunday160 (a story told in 160 characters, including spaces) is a tribute to my husband,
who just purchased a new car - a hybrid - and spends WAY too much time worrying about
the low 37.5 miles per gallon he's getting in town. It's rather adorable.
Happy Father's Day to all you Dads out there - especially Monkey Man 
(if he's not too busy making car sounds from the front seat...)

Hybrid!?! What kind of woosy drives a hybrid. Oh. Yeah. Right. Getting greedy to be over 40 MPH isn't such a bad thing....is it? Thanks for the FD wishes and thanks for playing along with my silly little 160 game. You're still the best.

Monkey Man said...

MPG not MPH!! Although there are those would would think that's all a hybrid can do.

lol! I now have visions of grown-up guys in peddle cars causing slow-motion traffic jams on the highways. Loved it!

Happy Father's Day to all the Dads!

What good is the gas with no miles? Yep, gotta leave the driveway someday.

That's really cute--just like a man--obsessing over mileage!

Granny Annie said...

Glad to know this is a common concern among the males.

~laughing hysterically~ I LOVE this! I would have typed: LMFAO...but I think that's considered bad manners in the blogging world. Doesn't matter though, anyway I put this, I am laughing, and you are brilliant!
