all I want for Xmas?

Tempting… A robotic vacuum. A little round robot that vacuums your house on a pre-set schedule while you aren’t even home. There’s even a new model designed for homes with pet hair “concerns.” And it’s cute! It looks like a baby flying saucer that doesn’t fly. I need this. Plus… I’m a gadget freak. I wonder if it really works—I’d be happy if it just sort-of worked.
It comes with a remote control—the husband will love it and much much cheaper than hiring a maid. He could even use it out in the garage. He’ll love that. If only it could clean snow… and leaves…
Not sure what my dog will think as he watches it whirl and twirl past him as he’s trying to sleep. Who cares what the dog thinks—he might enjoy it. Hopefully the Roomba would still be intact when I return home from work. And will the Roomba be able to keep up with the amount of dog hair that is continually released from this creature before the batteries drain out?
Hmmm, massive time saver or the ultimate demonstration of unbridled American laziness?
