dialog with a vacuum cleaner
April 20, 2011
Me: Lily’s away for the weekend. Must vacuum before she comes home, because she hates the vacuum.
Vacuum cleaner: You know, if you really want to vacuum you’re going to have to clean all that stuff off the floor.
Me: Holy cow, where did all that come from?
VC: Well, when you came back from the weekend, did you put your things away or did you just dump them here?
Me: I. . .er. . .hey! Squirrel!
VC: So, are you going to clean it up now so we can get to work or what?
Me: I don’t wanna. Maybe we can just vacuum around the stuff.
VC: Hmph. Might as well not vacuum at all.
Me: What a great idea! Fabulous!
