Everyday dose of Reality
Somewhere there is a rainbow and I now have one in my house.
Not as colorful as the ones in the sky, much more useful to me. The other day I gave my tribe of shampoo machines and vacuums a rest. For roughly 13 years Macgyver has been on me about getting a Rainbow and I finally gave in. These suckers are pricey, which was also the main reason I have resisted for so long. I don’t have a grand lying around to spend on a vacuum. “AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, but it’s not just a vacuum. It has EVERYTHING you could ever need” he has continuously said. I dug through Ebay for a while last week and tried really hard to find one for sale that had “everything” and wouldn’t cost us our first-born plus a goat, a gold-plated truck and a grand to boot. This one in the picture above is what I came up with and it has “everything” as you can see. Yep, it has more accessories than 2 Barbie’s with a full wardrobe plus her Malibu Mansion. Might I add she is the only doll with her own mansion, how uppity is that?
The Rainbow came in the mail and Macygver was like a kid on Christmas morning. As he pulled each piece out he was explaining to me what it was for and what I could do with them. He explained that it is not just a vacuum(again, it has everything don’t you know). No filters to replace because it dumps all the dirt and yuck into a water filled basin under the motor and releases no dust or junk in the air. Once again I didn’t realize he was that concerned about the air quality in our home and would have thought if he was soooooooooooo concerned, he might spend some time to come up with some new fangled thing to stop the smelly toxic air that seeps from the HIS children’s behinds from time to time.
So it has a couple of miles of hose, enough power cord to circle the globe twice and a water line for shampooing that I figure I could reach Texas if I wanted to. Once he unpacked the entire thing, he was off and running from room to room. Sucking, blowing, shampooing and whistling a tune. Here is what I have learned about owning a Rainbow vacuum for a week now: I have only been able to use it 1 time because he always has it. I should pay better attention to what type of cooking pots & pans he has mentioned over the years to me. If I can narrow the brand down, I may never have to cook again. So in short it may not be the rainbow in the sky, BUTTTTTTTTTTTT there was a pot of gold at the end of the vacuum in the form of Macgyver doing all the vacuuming in the house now. It’s a win win, right 🙂
