Last week Me and Teddy found out that hoovers are actually the worst thing EVER!
A hoover is a bit like a pet. Otter Keeper will take it for a walk around the house once or twice a week. There’s nothing wrong with this, me and teddy have discussed it and we think it’s good that Otter Keeper has hobbies. However the hoover really doesn’t appreciate Otter Keeper and it makes a REALLY loud whining noise that for some reason he puts up with! This is really unfair because if me and Teddy made that amount of noise (like when we do band practice) we would definitely get in trouble.
The hoover had been getting on our nerves more than ever recently and the last straw came when Otter Keeper said he had his friend coming round for tea. For some reason this meant spending even more time with the hoover and taking it for extra long walks around the house (maybe he was worried the hoover would feel left out when his friend arrived as it wouldn’t get much attention?).Teddy said he’d had enough of the hoover and something must be done – I agreed.
Apparently hoovers are VERY expensive and VERY important and you should NEVER NEVER EVER push them down the stairs. It appeared Teddy had misjudged the situation and the hoover was more of a valued friend to Otter Keeper than we had accounted for. We tried to suggest he replaced the hoover with a kitten as a pet instead but Otter Keeper said this was not the same thing at all? he said you couldn’t clean the house with a kitten. Teddy cleverly pointed out that you might be able to if it were a nice kitten and you asked it politely. Otter Keeper didn’t agree and I advised Teddy to keep quiet, we were in lots of trouble.
Things were still a little sad the next day because me and Teddy were still in trouble. But then Otter Keeper came home with a new hoover. Me and Teddy were annoyed but tried to make an effort to be friends… however we quickly realised that this hoover was different. This hoover had an inbuilt Otter riding facility – and as Teddy pointed out, this changed everything.
Teddy now admits he was too harsh with judging the hoover and Otter Keeper is so pleased we’re all getting on that I don’t think we’re even in trouble any more! I now know that not all hoovers are bad and some are actually really brilliant – which is great news. (I’d still quite like a kitten though) Teddy said maybe he could ride around on the new kitten whilst I go on the hoover. I told Teddy to stop being so stupid – everyone knows that kittens are very different from hoovers.
