Before I start my story, I just want to say I'm sorry that I haven't been here regularly. I've been so busy with music - performances, rehearsals, practicing, teaching etc. It's not a bad problem to have, but it's just been really tough for me to be online. If anyone lives in the Atlanta, Georgia area (I know there are a few of you), and you want to meet me or hear me play (or both), I invite you to come this Sunday, October 19th at 4:00 PM to Musik21: 10700 State Bridge Road., Suite 12, Johns Creek, GA 30022 for a chamber music recital (string quintet). It's free. And there will be food (which means I'd better get baking!)
Now for the story:
Our vacuum cleaner hasn't been working so well. Probably because of all the dog hair it's had to pick up through the years. The on button stays permanently on, so in order to get the thing to shut off, I have to unplug it.
I've told my husband about it numerous times. But nothing seemed to get done. Until he had to vacuum. Then he realized how annoying it was.
He went into the garage and rummaged through his tool box. When he returned, there was a hammer in his hand.
"What are you going to do with that?" I asked.
"Watch and learn," he said.
He took that thing and whacked the side of the vacuum cleaner, near the button.
I raised my eyebrows. "You think that's going to work?"
He looked at me and grinned. Then he plugged the vacuum cleaner in. It didn't turn on. I figured it was busted completely.
Then he pressed the on button. Guess what happened? It turned on! He pressed it again. Yes. You guessed it. It turned off.
The genius fixed it.
So, ladies and gentlemen, next time your vacuum cleaner acts a little funky, just get a hammer and whack it.
