First of all, why in the world are there two U’s in vacuum? Could that word be any more difficult to spell? I will never not have to spell check it.
That felt good to get off my chest. Now on to my next point. I pretty much compulsively vacuum my house. I love clean floors. There is nothing like them. I know, that’s not everyone’s normal, but it’s totally mine. Here’s the issue. There is always something making floors dirty. Always. I could vacuum, and four seconds after I finish there is something, somewhere on the floor. A piece of hair maybe, a piece of grass, a crumb, a thing-a-ma-jiggy. It could be anything, but it will always be something. And it’s more than annoying. It makes me want to pull the vacuum out and start all over again. Which I absolutely would do…if it wasn’t such a pain.
Which leads me to my next point. Can somebody please take the initiative after reading this to invent an incredibly convenient, light-weight vacuum? The Dust Buster tried to be that. Remember the Dust Buster? What a bust that thing was (see what I did there?). It would be a million dollar idea if there are any other people out there as obsessed with clean floors as I am. Anyone out there as obsessed with clean floors as I am?
I sometimes wonder how many hours of my life I’ve spent vacuuming. If I started tracking it now I would probably be frightened. Probably best to stay away from the statistics and just give in to my crazy ways. OCD maybe? As Chick A likes to say “I have CDO, it’s like OCD, but all the letters are in alphabetical order, as they SHOULD be”. She didn’t exactly coin that phrase, but I heard it from her first so in my mind she did. Totally counts.
