Wednesday morning felt longer than most, and I watched anxiously as the minutes slowly ticked away on the clock. As I sat in the window and waited, I felt like a kid on Christmas!
The butterflies in my stomach fluttered and danced with every sound of an approaching vehicle.
When, oh when, would it arrive?
What would it feel like to finally hold it in my hands?
How will I feel when I finally look upon its beauty…its power.
Just when I thought I couldn’t make it another moment without it, I heard the undeniable sound of the UPS truck as it rounded the corner and approached my house.
Before the driver was able to apply the brakes and halt the truck, I was already out the door, running barefoot to meet him at the end of the driveway.
I couldn’t help but bounce around a little as I heard the driver searching for my package in the back. As he pulled the box into view, I tried to be casual and said, “Oh, I didn’t even realize this was coming today.”
The driver smiled but eyed me suspiciously, clearly not believing a word I said, and replied, “Let me carry it to the door for you.”
I caught myself skipping up the driveway behind him and quickly changed my pace to a quick walk careful not to follow too close behind him.
As he set the package down and scanned the item the joy was too much to contain and I blurted out, “Oh my God it’s more beautiful than I imagined! I can’t wait to fire this baby up!”
He chuckled and told me to have fun as I began opening the packaging just inside the door.
My hands couldn’t go fast enough.
I quickly read the instructions and assembled the product, letting out the occasional “ohhhh!” and “ahhh!” as I connected pieces together completing a virtual masterpiece right before my eyes.
Surely this is how Michelangelo felt as he put the final touches on the Sistine Chapel in Rome.
Finally, I plugged it in, clicked the power button on, and stood motionless for a moment absorbing the power as the machine kicked to life.
A flood of emotions rushed through me as I took her on her maiden voyage…
The LG Kompressor Plus sucked even more than I ever imagined…it sucked up dirt, dust, goldfish crackers, Cheerios and the like that had been neglected by my previous Dyson.
If only vacuuming was this fun every day…
It’s the simple things right? Are there things you get a little too excited about? Leave me a comment!
