Inexplicably, I haven’t run my Roomba in a month or more. I had forgotten how good this little thing is. After pulling up all the dropcloths and masking tape in the living room, I ran the robot before loading furniture back in. This room has hardwood floors and when I sweep, I can never get them as clean as the Roomba can. Besides the nerd appeal and the fact that it is kind of fun to watch it randomly walk around the room, that thing Just Plain Works Well. I’m always a little amazed at how much hair and dirt is in the bin when I run it in a room that looks pretty clean. Thank you, lil’ robot, for cleaning my house. Now if I could just afford the thing that cuts your grass the same way, I’d be in robot heaven.
