By the way, did you catch the key phrase there?
For ten years, I've annoyed Joe by just sort of clumping together vacuum cords and throwing them on top in a tangled mess. It has nearly brought my marriage to its knees. Well...that and the fact that I don't cook, sew, or vacuum.
So cordless Mutt there changed everything. He's also got a wider footprint for faster vacuuming and a longer suction time than the earlier Dyson model. The fact that I don't have to bend over to plug him in has resulted in daily vacuuming after morning breakfast. This is once the kids have departed for school and left a trail of Cheerios behind that would do Hansel and Gretel proud.
Which brings me back to the title.
Mutt and Jeff spill NOTHING. And even if they do, you know they'll just suck it up.
In addition, they practice their piano without a fuss:
And they never, ever fight:
I was a little worried about adopting Jeff because I thought I could not love him as much as his cordless brother. You see, Jeff has one of those dangly things that causes so much strife in my marriage.
Yet Jeff (aka the DC 65) has twice the suction power of any other vacuum out there. As I promised the friendly Dyson people I'd foster him for a bit, I finally got around to giving him a whirl.
Hole. E. Sh*t.
I could not believe the amount of fine dust and particles that Jeff was able to grab. For all those parents with new crawlers and babies who mistakenly think toxic chemicals are the way to go to clean an older carpet? Forget that. Jeff could suck the white off rice.
Which just goes to show you that a mother is indeed capable of loving all her children the same.
Ok, but now the big news!
When my buddy Kari and I went to the fancy-dancy DC65 Launch Party, we got a little behind-the-scene look at their new fans. We both had to sign away our lives and promise not to breathe a word about it. UNTIL TODAY.
I know what you're thinking.
It's not like a vacuum. It's no Mutt and Jeff.
But no. These fans are all magic and sh*t. No blades. Deadly quiet. Energy efficient. Easy to clean. Designed by an army of people who paid attention in math class.
I think if we all turned one on, we might be able to blow away this longest freaking winter ever.
Ok. I have to go now. Mutt and Jeff are making dinner and I need to supervise.
And hug my Dysons.
