Being Carbon neutral…

Not to be left behind in the environmental conscious race, we recently decided to do our bit by purchasing a hybrid vehicle. In fact, the additional car could have been easily avoided but we believed in it and did it. So we have taken our first step towards being carbon neutral. Again, this term is so loosely used that there is nothing neutral in the usage. But at least,it is being used for a good purpose. Even if people think they have done enough by taking this small step (which is insane), it is still better than driving 2 blocks in a Hummer all by yourself and idling the engine for hours in a parking lot while you are sipping a cup of coke & talking on the cell phone with your buddy!

The best part is that even our son understands the concept of using a hybrid vehicle (in his own little mind)..even though he likes getting on his monster van (who doesn’t?). He has already started asking me about why we don’t have a hybrid minivan.
Any auto manufacturer listening?

Here is a picture of my wife’s prized possession and our pride.


Besides fantasizing about being a Peter Gibbons at least for a couple of days at my work, I think I have a long way to go to realize some of the other fantasies. But like any ambitious man out there, I will get there!
