The closest I will probably ever get to winning a “major award” just like The Old Man did in A Christmas Story.
On a lark, I entered a sweepstakes at the online store where I get my vacuum belts and filters. Now, I am the proud owner of a Dyson Slim. Wow! I never win anything.
A friend, who is a fellow Dyson owner, told me that I would “amazed and repulsed” by the amount of stuff it pulls out of the carpet. That is probably true with three furballs living in the house.
Oh, BTW – if you are interested in getting the “major award” from the movie, apparently, you can.
