I want to tell you an amazing and true story about how your 8lb vacuum saved a life, and subsequently brought a small town family closer together!

I remember it was the first really hot day of Spring. My daughter, Rebecca, was sunning herself on our trampoline, and just being an all-round brat. My son, Johan, was ignoring my wife's request for him to do some chores around the house, namely vacuum...

Now I'm playing rock band (on expert). My wife is throwing a fit because nobody is doing anything but her. LOL!
Once I was done I wanted to annoy my daughter because some stupid boys from the neighborhood were coming over. So I tell Johan to turn on the sprinklers and get Becca all wet...This goes on for 20-30 minutes and the yard is saturated. THen I get in my 2006 Dodge Ram (AWESOME TRUCK) and start doing donuts in the yard. The 22inch tires are shredding the yard and throwing the now wet (from the sprinkler) lawn all over Becca she is covered in mud and screaming like a BRAT! She stands up on the trampoline and starts stamping her feet and screaming and Johan is sprayin her down with the hose! She loses her balance and falls off the trampoline. She is badly injured and I don't even notice i'm just SPINNIN the Ram around the yard laughing my ass off! Johan then comes up and tells me stop because Becca is hurt.

We get her the attention she needs and it turns out she only had separated her shoulder on the fall. But if my son Johan had been vacuuming like he was supposed I would have never known to stop and Becca could have died....
