Prompted by me asking a friend who has never seen my car before to walk outside and grab something from it.

Friend: *walks back inside with requested item* “So...what kind of car is that?

Me: “It’s a Saab.”

Him: “Ok, but like, what is that?”

Me: “It’s Swedish.”

Him: “Ooooh fancy. So is it a sports car?”

Me: “It’s a hatchback?”

Him: “Okay, but I saw it has that hood thing, so is it fast?”

Me: “I mean, I guess so. It can keep up with some sports cars.”

Him: “Cool!”


Now imagine how much confusion I would’ve gotten if I tried to explain the Subaru part.
