Weird things
By Jill Pertler

I have a friend who wondered out loud on Facebook whether it was weird for her to be excited about the purchase of a new vacuum cleaner. There can be only one answer to an outrageous question like this: H-E-double toothpicks, no!

A vacuum is worthy of a fair amount of hoopla. It is a nearly-essential household appliance, albeit not a major one, but in a similar position of importance as a crockpot or coffee maker. (And who’d want to live without those?) I can get excited about a whole lot less than a vacuum — like when my stainless-steel fridge is free of streaks and smudges or I happen to nab the last scoop of rocky road ice cream.
