“Cowardice often comes dressed as reasonableness.”  Enrique Martinez Celaya

About a month ago my favorite vacuum cleaner started to do a floppy dance.  It looked as if its bones had come apart.  That’s a pretty weird description of the cleaner, but I don’t know how else to describe what occurred.  My handy husband took the cleaner out to the garage to fix it.  It wouldn’t fix.

Fortunately, we’d kept our old, clunky cleaner.  I decided that the upstairs couldn’t wait for the favorite cleaner to return to health so I got out the clunky cleaner.  Within a minute of turning it on it made a clunky sound, then a terrible roar, and then began to smell like something burning.

While sharing this information with a friend I also shared that hubby and I were going to go shopping for a new vacuum that day.  “Get a Shark,” came a male voice from across the room.  “Yes, a Shark,” said another male.  Men vacuum?!  Life is good.

Finally, a woman nearby said,” A Shark is so strong that I could suck up one of my grandchildren with that thing.”


This is the state of the vacuum fresh out of its box.  I highly recommend putting it together as it works much better that way.  I’m not sure if it could suck up grandchildren and I haven’t had a volunteer so I can test that theory.

I like this vacuum because it has a long cord and a long hose.  It’s user friendly.  Best of all, the color matches my dining and living room.  Yes, I’m shallow.
