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!

    I hear you. This is the way my desk gets piled inches deep full of notes, bills, and miscellaneous Very Important Papers.

    I tell myself that a cluttered desk is the sign of a healthy mind, but sometimes that just don’t fly…

    I pull out the vacuum, and i never hear it. Instead i hear my dog deciding it is the most evil thing ever created and barking ensues…

    LOL. Glad to know I’m not the only one allergic to that tool. (says the woman whose carpets match the cats sometimes due to hair build up)

    My vacuum has been abandoned in the laundry room for so long that it’s no longer speaking to me. Good thing I’m cool with that.

    I feel the same way too sometimes. I’ll clean everything else all day long but when it’s time to vacuum I try to avoid it… least favorite cleaning I like to do.

    In other news I finally got my copy of Steel in the mail. Two shipments and a month later… at least I got it. So far it’s an amazing book!

    I vacuum around. . . You mean that doesn’t count and I have been lying to my family about the fact that I vacuum my room every month?!

  7. Joe Says:

    I hate to stereotype, but I think all of those Vacuums’ think the same, I have had exactly, word for word, the same conversation with mine.

    My vacuum caught on fire.
    Flames shooting out from under.
    Scorched the carpet.
    Tossed it outside.
    All is well.

    That was 2 years ago.
    Thinking about shopping.
    The thought passed.
    Back to reading.
