I cheated with my Dirt Devil

I cheated. Badly. With my Dirt Devil no less. It was beckoning to me from the box. Cordless Convenience! Quick Power! Versatile Cleaning! Cleans Carpets and Bare Floors! Quick and Easy Storage! No Bags!

I couldn't take anymore. I was supposed to charge it for the full 24 hours. I couldn't resist. Maybe that's why they call it the "Dirt Devil?" It works like a DREAM. So light. So efficient! I wanted to use it all over my house!

How much time will I have to spend in The Confessional for cheating? No wait, I'm not a Catholic anymore. I'm Episcopalian. Whew! We're more liberal socially. I really don't want to go to hell over a vacuum cleaner.

"Dirty Angel" doesn't have the same ring to it, vis a vis a vacuum--but it would be a nice name for an inflatable doll.

I guess we are theologically dualistic when it comes to our dirt--"Dirt Mortal" doesn't really sound like something you would reach for when you knock a potted plant over.

I missed it? Damn work stuff keeps getting in the way.
Happy Belated Birthday. Sorry I missed it.
But you asked for a Dirt Devil? I have to agree, never ask or applicances, it sets a bad precedent. Though you did ask for perfume too, so that might offset. LOL. Hugs, love and prayers.
Keep smiling.

I also have to say I've cheated too - once or twice - once it was with a partially charged screwdriver - I had to get the job done - unfortunately the screwdriver pooped out half way through the job - I guess somebody up there was punishing me for not following instructions. I've also done it with chargeable flashlights but had better luck - no punishment those times. Anywho WW if there is a heaven you are bound to get there and no Dirt Devil guick charge is going to stop it. Hope I am as lucky. Old Baldy

Cordless?? Oooooh, I have to have one!

I just spent some time digging around in your archives. Great blog you have here. Congratulations on the windfall and I'll definitely be back!

NOthing like cheating on the ol' devil and not getting caught. May you have many moments of pure indulgence with the little sucker.

Hahaha, we all do stuff like that from time to time. By the way, what is a Episcopalian? Sorry, I'm not very big into the religion stuff but this is the first time I've come across this term

Yay! How fun, I love to play with new toys. Whenever I've gotten new phones in the past I could never wait to fully charge them.
I'm sure it'll be fine.
