You have three hundred words to justify the existence of your favorite person,place or thing. Failure to convince will result in it vanishing without a trace.Go!

This morning I took out my favorite thing “The Vacuum Cleaner.” Without this awesome creation of technology, my house would look  no better than a garbage dump.

I took out this awesome machine, turned it on and voila it was getting rid of the cat hair, the cat food I spilled yesterday evening was gobbled by it in minutes.

I went to the kitchen the particles not visible by human eye were comfortably laying there, knowing the owner of the house will not see them, my amazing machine cleared it in no time, the kitchen that was not so clean became as clean as a whistle.

I moved on with my man made creation to my bedroom, the cat hair found its way there too,I extended the hose of my machine with a swishing sound it swallowed  the hair  and dirt which ultimately  landed in the paper bag.

The cats were amazed to see such a machine they stayed clear of it for they did not want to be victims like the hair, the dirt,  food particles, bits of paper chewed by the naughty cats; Raphael and Gabriel.

I was about to disconnect the poor machine it worked so terribly hard for me, suddenly I heard a little voice, “Miss you forgot to use me on the bathroom floor.”

Did I really hear it, of course I did so I went to the bathroom and found locks of hair were in the corner trying to hide from me and the vacuum cleaner, I pointed the hose in the corner and my priceless machine did the job. I was so glad I have it, tell me is there another thing as useful as this my wonderful machine!

What’s the oldest thing you own?( toys, clothing,twinkies,Grecian Urns, anything’s a fair game.) Recount its history from the object’s point of view.

I am a sofa set, I’m not sure when and where I was born, I have traveled in many places,I was tired I needed one place to call home. The owner was kind he let me stay in his well decorated store in Montreal. One day a family came to the store, they were looking for some furniture, I pleaded to God to keep me in the store, I was beginning to love my home. 

I was watching the customers going and coming but no one showed any interest to grab me, I was soooo glad, to my dismay I saw a family approaching towards me. Then their conversation scared me they were thinking of taking me away from my home. My owner tried to convince them the other set is better, but they refused to listen, they bought me and the dreaded thing happened, I’d be shipped to “NEWFOUNDLAND”, I thought I was done with the monotony of travel,but it was my fate, it took me to far away Newfie town. I arrived in the town safe and sound, the problem arose when the shipping agency tried to charge more than the store owner had promised for shipment. The family refused to pay more, they informed the agency, they will not pay any more than what they were promised.

The thought of sending me back to Montreal didn’t seem a good idea to the agents, they agreed with the original price and I was brought to my new home. I’m here for a long time, I see a lot of people they seem to enjoy the comfort I provide when they’re seated.

Lately I’m disturbed by their kittens, they have a bad habit of making me a scratch post, I can tell you this much, if the owner doesn’t stop the felines from damaging my body, I’d end up in the city’s garbage dump. I am very scared, I hope this doesn’t happen to me.

Would you dear readers help me from these naughty Felines?
