Sad day in the Ruby household.
We just said goodbye to a loved one whom is very near and dear to our hearts.
It seriously came out of nowhere.
A few days ago, Mr. Ruby informed me that he was thinking of trading in his prized possession for another. I just about fell right off the couch (and of course didn't believe him).
Now, for those of you who do not know my sweet husband, this was earth-shattering news. The Prius had kinda, sorta become his identity. We all teased him relentlessly when he first bought the Prius. It looked like a spaceship, had a little "nub" for a stick shift , and didn't make a sound when you turned it on. I think he may have been 1 of 3 people in the whole state of Rhode Island who drove a Prius. But that thing was his pride and joy.
So, needless to say, when we were chatting the other evening about potentially selling the Prius, I figured it was just a random thought and he would move on.
But then I got a phone call. Just a few minutes ago.
"I did it. No more Prius," said this little sullen voice on the other end. :(
I can't believe he actually went through with it.
Apparently, the Prius is such a highly sought after car because of gas prices, that they basically gave us what we paid for it brand new 2 years ago. He traded it in for another solid, reliable car, and we were able to pay off our other loan. This means no more car payments!!!
But man, oh man. Sad day. I hope the next owner fully appreciates the sweet little Pri-Pri.
She's gonna be missed.
