I'm cleaning the kitchen up. I've asked Ella to vacuum the dining room...since we all know that's the best place in the house for carpeting. But I digress.
ANYWAY, I see her running down the hall and it occurs to me that I heard her get out the vacuum but never heard the thing moaning and squeaking across the carpeting.
ME: Ella, did you vacuum yet?
Huh, how do you "almost" vacuum?
