The Shark ate my post

August 10th, 2015 ·1 Comment

Well, that was something. I was writing about the old vacuum cleaner dying and on LZP’s recommendation, which I overheard while watching a movie in his living room as he and Der Bingle imbibed in the kitchen, getting a Shark. Why they were talking about vacuum cleaners, I have no idea.  But, anyway, when the vacuum died, I bought a Shark and I was writing about it here and POOF, the post disappeared in front of my eyes. Sucked right into the vortex of cyberspace.

But I should be able to deal with that, after all, I got through yesterday when an Elmo balloon got sucked into a ceiling fan and the string round about the mechanism, causing it to stop. Elmo just looked down. We cut him lose, cleared the fan and all seemed well; and then I heard a Whack, Whack and looked up to see that Elmo had once again encounter the fan, but without string had been tossed out the other side. I tied a cord on him and tied that to the table, but later I noticed that a spot in the cord was inexplicably fraying. I have knotted the weak area, but I wonder if I am just delaying some date with destiny this Elmo has. The other Elmos are just floating around, although we did come upon one naughty boy hovering on the ceiling of a bathroom.

Back to the Shark. I have to admit it is fun to watch the dirt being captured in the canister which easily empties from the bottom. I have not put the Shark lengthwise on the floor and jumped it, just in case anyone is wondering. To be honest, I should say, I have not done that yet.
