I had been begging Brian for one of these beauties for a few weeks. Some of you may be thinking, "Really? A vacuum cleaner is that exciting to you?" YES! I love to clean. It's therapy and normalcy for me. I'm a type-A, anal retentive, control freak at heart, and my house is one thing that I can still maintain some sense of control over in the midst of turmoil in every other arena.
Anyway, a week and a half ago, I was on the computer when this little notification window popped up that said, "Target Order Confirmation". My curiosity was immediately piqued. Quickly, I said to Brian, "I'm gonna check your email, okay?" He got a big grin on his face, and I knew that my dreams were rapidly coming true. Sure enough, my husband had purchased the vacuum cleaner.
Everyday, I would excitedly throw the front door open, in hopes that my new love had arrived. Finally, last week, I saw the big brown UPS truck slow to a halt in front of my house. I could feel my heart skip a beat and a smile overtook my face. "It's here. She's finally here." I sang gleefully to myself.
At once, I flung open the door to see... a baby stroller. You got it. An Evenflo baby stroller. "What in the world?" I wondered. Sure enough, Target had made quite the error and sent the wrong thing.
I had the poor customer service representative on the phone within seconds, promising to me that this problem would be remedied that very day. She was as nice as you can imagine, but I couldn't help but let my disappointment spill out in the tone of my voice. "We'll have one shipped out first thing in the morning, "she politely assured me.
So, after much waiting and anticipation, I'm now the proud owner of a Dyson Pink. You know what the funny part is, I can't even vacuum right now. But, that doesn't stop me from admiring her from across the room :)
[And, just a side note - $30 from each Dyson Pink purchase benefits the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.]
