Electrolux HUSH Happier at Home

Okay, I might be the only guy who will be proudly writing about this but what the hey, right? I love lazy weekends and I love just hearing chimes and birds chirping when I'm at home and away from all the confusion that is work.

I love weekends. Man, who doesn't? But what I love the most about weekends (aside from my wife, of course -- hello, wife:p) is the respite from all that is noisy. Yes, those useless loud chatter from that also-useless officemate. That loud ringing of the phone on the other line (hello, speakerphone, please answer your phone). The enigma that is EDSA traffic and the boisterous car and bus horns (jeeps don't beep their horns, they just cut you without warning). These are the things that I don't miss about weekdays.

During weekends, I love lying in bed and absolutely do nothing. Yes, nothing. Ask my wife and she'll probably write a longer blog post than this just describing how I am a master of doing nothing.

Aside from my wife, my bed would probably also complain about my expertise in doing nothing during weekends. I smother my bed and show it how I missed it every single chance I get. While there, I watch basketball and do other men stuff (okay, not what you're thinking) like...nothing. Yes, I just lie in bed and do nothing.

I just breathe in the silence.

But sometimes my doing nothing gets interrupted. And I hate it. And the culprit is the noisy vacuum cleaner that if I just have the chance (and if my wife would allow me to) would throw it away instantly!

Many NBA games have been ruined by that vacuum cleaner. Sometimes its even caused arguments inside the house because I didn't hear my wife ask me if she looked fat in that dress that she's wearing while vacuuming. I just nodded and said yes to be polite. Wrong move.

I wish we had a  silent vacuum cleaner like the Electrolux Ultra Silencer Vacuum. I wish we also had the Electrolux Powersilent Blender so I could at least even on one occasion be useful in the house during weekends and fix myself and the wife a cocktail.

I just wish we had those to maintain the peace and quiet during weekends.

Maybe having a silent vacuum cleaner will encourage me to do something. Maybe with the silent blender I'd mix some fruit juices and not be my usual useless self.

Maybe when my wife asks me if she's fat in a particular dress, I'd give her the right answer.

Then maybe I would be typing this with two working hands. The wife sure gives a nasty hand grip when mad.

You'll never know. The next two working hands might be yours.
