"You vacuumed up Mom?!"

My sister has a couple of new dogs, who are wild and crazy.

I noticed a piece of broken pottery on her table. "What's this?" I asked, picking it up.

"Oh, that's the top of Mom's urn."

"What happened?"

"Elvira was getting a little rambunctious and knocked the urn over."

"Please tell me you didn't vacuum up Mom."

"Uh...."

"Oh, my God! You vacuumed up Mom!"

Spent the rest of Thanksgiving periodically bursting out with.

"You vacuumed up Mom?!"

Nobody but me thought it was funny....

Maybe I'm just twisted. But I think Mom would've found being knocked over by rambunctious dogs entirely appropriate. She loved life.

No, no -- it was funny.

I suppose that lots of people's remains have been disturbed by more than dogs and vacuums.

Like D9 cats & excavators!

I hope she put the vacuum cleaner bag in a place of honor.
