Totally Random Memory

I was vacuuming the guest room (aka my scrap room) the other night (because company was coming and I had to) and a memory from when I was a kid popped into my head.

While growing up, I remember having a vacuum that you couldn’t leave in one place on the carpet for too long. Why? Because it would burn the carpet.

I kid you not.

Like, you’d smell burning carpet.

I wonder if either of my sisters remember this. I don’t think they read my blog so I suppose I would have to ask them.

That’s not a normal thing, right? Vacuums aren’t supposed to burn the carpet if you leave them running in one place?

I wouldn’t know – I don’t use them often enough to know if this is a common occurrence. 

Oh – and thank goodness for spellcheck because not only do I not use a vacuum, I also don’t know how to spell it.
