Back To School Giveaway: Win a Panasonic vacuum
Of all the chores in the world, vacuuming is the one I least mind doing. I am not sure why; I guess it's gratifying to hear stuff clink-clink-clinking up the hose. Also, I like pushing things around. Sometimes, I dance a little while I vacuum, though that's never yet been caught on video, which Dave could easily use to blackmail me if he so chose.
I met a super-nice lady from Panasonic at an event a few months ago, and she let me try out a Jetspin Cyclone Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner. I like that it has a HEPA filter to remove allergens and pollutants. I like that you don't have to buy bags because it has a fully washable cup, to get out all the dirt. But what I love most is the infrared dirt sensor, which senses whether the vacuum is still cleaning. If the light is red, there's still stuff on the floor or carpet; if it's green, the area's clean. By the time I'm done with the rugs, I know they're clean.
Wouldn't it be great if someone invented a light that alerted you to when your five-year-old is about to have a temper tantrum, so you could brace yourself and/or run for cover? Just a thought.
