Weekly Prompt: Hybrid
Hybrid is a word that has become very popular over the last fifteen years. I had rarely heard it in years past, but you hear it all the time now. I am talking about hybrid cars.
My son got a new car a few years ago. I was visiting him and he said so do you like the car. I told him sure, but I would never have a black car especially in Florida. It is so hot down there and the black car and black interior made the car so uncomfortable. He laughed, then said it’s a hybrid. I looked at him and I have to admit I had no idea what he was talking about. Now, I knew what the definition of a hybrid was, but not really what it meant with respect to a car.
He went on to explain how the car worked and that it was so much better for the environment. It was much more information about a car that I really had wanted to ever know. But you know big boys and their big toys. 🙂
I am proud that my son is being a responsible steward of our planet. My generation not only didn’t have hybrids, we used high octane gas that could have eaten through steel if allowed to sit on it long enough.
What I really find amazing is how long it’s been since hybrid cars have been researched, built and not produced. It seems that we are always looking out for the all mighty dollar when it comes to changes that will improve our world. Very sad indeed.
