My Vacuum Meets the "Walking Carpet"

It never fails.

I'm vacuuming, moving furniture (because my husband is not Mr. Incredible) and I spot this.






I'm thinking, "what is that - a dried up piece of poop?" Because in my house - that could totally be the case.

I summon up the courage to get closer. I'm sniffing the area at the safest possible distance, my reluctant fingers stretched towards it, until finally - touchdown. I wipe my brow (with the other hand) because the piece of questionable brown is just a piece...of plastic.

In fact, this is it:



We have to stop running into each other like this. What are you - stalking me?

And every time, I pick up this little guy, I wind up singing the "Chewbacca" song by Supernova.

Say what?! You're not sure you know it? Well, here's a reference from "Clerks" and I dare you to tell me  you don't sing it all day long after hearing it.


What a Wookie!

  1. So like you just had to do it... now I won't get this out of my head all day! However, I do have that vision of you possibly picking up poop... priceless! LOL

    1. Oh, thank God! A new recruit. One day, I imagine there'll be a "Chewbacca" song convention - and I'll be singing, "What a Poopie!"

  2. Oh dear, Nami. It's 9:30pm as I read this. No doubt I'm going to bed with this blasted song in my head. Thank you...

  3. 1. I'm totally not going to listen to the song because then it will get stuck in my head until tomorrow when I wake up, and that's bullshit.
    2. I am so proud of you for posting so often I want to send you a gift. Unfortunately, I can't because Hot Joe won't give up the cash, which I apparently spend too much (whatever Hot Joe). One day, though, one day that gift will come. You'll know because I'll ask for your address. I'm so smooth.

  8. Woo hoo for dried poop-free vacuuming!
    And at least, thanks to you, I've got the Alvin and the Chipmunks (old school) theme song out of my head now.
    What a wookie!

    1. Ha, ha! Now I bet you can't see any picture of ChewBACCA! and not sing that song. Although, any Alvin and the Chipmunks tune is like brain-glue.

    Yeah, I've got that damn song in my mind....

    1. Which proves that the most memorable songs are three chords and under two minutes long!
