On Steam Cleaning

I sent this synopsis of my day to my friend Barb and she said it was a good belly laugh. Actually, I'm not sure if it's the glorious glass of wine I've consumed or my supreme ability to laugh at myself (doubtful), but it does make me laugh too.

Here ya go, a straight-up Apple-V (aka the paste command):

"I hate carpet with a deep-rooted passion. I just borrowed my in-laws Hoover for a few days to see if it would make an improvement.

Hilarious though, I spent THREE HOURS on this project today (between the clutter clearing, moving furniture, vacuuming, pre-treating on my hands and knees with a scrub brush and brutally ripping skin off my thumb when I whacked it into a baseboard) and guess what?

It looked like I simply vacuumed.

Terrific ROI! I was pleased as punch (not).

Fast forward 7 hours. I get home from visiting Jeff's mom for the afternoon and early dinner and go to clean out the "dirty water" and discover it is dry as a desert. UM that may be why it looks like I only vacuumed. Jeff says, "What does this trigger button do?"

Trigger button?

Huh?

OH YOU HAVE TO PULL ON THAT TO RELEASE THE CLEANING SOLUTION THEREBY ACTUALLY CLEANING YOUR DISGUSTING CARPETS INSTEAD OF MERELY VACUUMING THEM LIKE YOU NORMALLY DO.

You know what?

I need to start drinking earlier in the day!"
