Roomba--- Ever since I learned about the robotic vacuum cleaner, I have wanted one but so far, just not enough to part with around $300 to own one.
The idea of a little round artificial intelligence gizmo that could clean my floors by itself and then put itself away in its charging station when done, was delightfully Jetson-esque for me. I always wanted to live in the Jetson's era.
I really HATE to vacuum. I am certain that if I am sent to the bad place when I die, my punishment will be to vacuum all of Hell for eternity. Shudder.
Not having the disposable $300 to replace a perfectly good human operated vacuum, I just yearn fruitlessly for a robotic one.
When my brother was here, the UPS man delivered vacuum cleaner bags I had ordered that Sears no longer carries in the store. As I was putting them away, I moaned to Jim about my yearning for a robotic cleaner.
He just got a funny look and said," But you all ready have one."
"Huh?" I questioned, " How do you figure that?"
He then pointed to the kitchen where Callie was scarfing up some toast crumbs from the floor.

Callie will go after a minuscule crumb with the same zeal she would her favorite kibble. I really do feed her enough but watching her weight is a constant as she is such a little piglet. She would look like a sausage on toothpicks if I let her have all she wanted. Callie is a total chow hound and is not too proud to clean crumbs from floors.
I got tickled when I saw her licking the floor and I had to admit to Jim that she does carpets also as I often eat in the living room watching TV. If I had a lot less couth, I would allow her to prepare the dishes for the dishwasher also. Fortunately, I am not quite that uncouth.
Guess I will just settle for my four legged crumb vacuum. If I hadn't all ready named her, I think the name Roomba would suit her fine.
Do you have one of those actual robotic marvels? Tell me how wonderful it is. If not, would you even want one? Or are you also the proud owner of a four legged, furry one like I am?
