MV Obsession

My obsession with Martha's Vineyard.. phototography..genealogy and life in general and this and that…

Evil Hostility …


Innocent vacuum or hostile alien creaure !  Until today I thought I knew!

I prefer upright vacuums and I think this canister was well aware of that.  I have trouble manuvering it around corners and furniture, it somehow digs its non-visible claws into the carpet and doesn’t want to budge, it rams itself into walls and balks at stairs.  It keeps dropping its cup, or food bowl, or whatever you want to call it.  It hits me in the back of my legs and then laughs in its diabolical vacuum voice.

I laid it down for a split second and I swear it stalked me.  Look at its all seeing eye, its long tubular nose and its wide sucking mouth.  Scary, huh.

I turned away for a moment and when I looked again this is what I saw…

Pulsating colors and inhuman screeching.  I feared for myself and my carpet.  I tried to placate it by offering it more food.  It stopped for a moment, laughed manically like only vacuums can, and then this happened.

I screamed at it and somehow managed to unplug its lifeline.  It is now locked away and I will be looking for a cute, friendly, happy little upright to take its evil place.

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. Hope you enjoy :)

  1. You gave me a good laugh with this post. I once threw a vacuum cleaner out my back door after the thing that holds all the dust exploded in my face. I prefer the upright kind too. When my son was little he vacuumed up some burning coals from the fireplace and when he screamed I looked at him and flames were coming out of the back of the cannister. I don’t have good luck with vacuum cleaners.

  2. You are SO overreacting. It’s a perfectly nice vacuum cleaner, and better behaved than any other canister vac I’ve tried…
