Day 78 - Lava lamp and getting the carpet steam cleaned

When I was 15, the answer I provided to a questionnaire that asked, "What is your favourite possession?" was "My lava lamp". I realised last night that I hadn't turned it on for years, so I flicked it on before I went to bed. When I awoke in the morning, this beautiful sight greeted me.
Mathmos lava lamp

So hypnotising and relaxing, I could watch it for hours! It also made me think of, "I drank a lava lamp, it wasn't lava." hahahaha

Today I got the carpets steam cleaned - woo hoo! I was insanely excited about it and Black Gold Carpet Cleaning's owner, Yasser, actually came to do the job himself.

There were 3 hilarious moments:
  1. Yasser was amused by how excited and amazed I was with watching black spots disappear off the carpet, and thought I'd be impressed when he showed me how filthy black the water was when he emptied it out from the steam cleaning machine (and I was very impressed). He then asked, "When's the last time you steam cleaned your carpet?" and when I responded with "Never", his jaw dropped to the floor. His expression was priceless.

  2. He then asked, "How long have you been living here for?" to which I answered, "Errrr we've lived here for 15 years" and he went ballistic! "WHAT 15 years and the carpet has never been steam cleaned?!?!?!"

  3. After Yasser finished up, I thanked him for doing a great job and as I extended my hand to offer a standard handshake (we shook hands when we met), he gave me a bro handshake instead!!! LOL I was in hysterics after! I don't know how but I had elevated myself to bro-ness!
It's such an delightful feeling to know that the carpet is fresh and clean! Once it had dried, I couldn't help rolling around in it with Snowflake.
