Dusty "Buster" Keel 2006-2010
Beloved Companion to Coach
It's ironic really, I registered for Dusty when we were getting married (which, incidentally will be 4 years ago this Thursday). Coach said it was a silly thing to register for; he didn't see the need. He was perfectly happy with his old, reliable dust pan, Pammy.
But I said, "Oh, the dustbuster is so sleek and pretty, she is efficient, and she joyfully cleans up messes. All she requires is to be recharged every so often. She'll never let you down." (Hint, hint)
Coach rolled his eyes. He doubted her- frankly I think he resented the whole needing to be recharged thing- in his world there is no recharging.
"Real men don't recharge" he says.
Then we honeymooned in the Caribbean. Turns out, he does recharge, and he snorkels, he drinks champagne, and he goes to art auctions to get out of the heat, but that's a story for another day.
Anyway, Dusty became a member of the Momsense family in July of 2006. After two days, Coach was smitten. They were inseparable, and she has been joyfully busting our messes ever since. For that we are all eternally grateful.
But now all we're left with is Pammy the Dustpan.
And now? Coach isn't satisfied with his first love, Pammy the Dustpan. Oh sure, Pammy works fine, has maintained her flat figure, and never ever requires recharging.
But she's not Dusty. Dusty was exciting, electric really. She's a hard broad to replace- she had voltage and verve. Pammy is introverted, task-oriented, and frankly, a little boring.
So it looks as though Coach will have to choose a new dustmate soon.
Or maybe I'll choose her for him.
