You, Robot

Todays prompt at The Daily Post caught my eye.

You, Robot

Congrats—you’ve been handed a robot whose sole job is to relieve you of one chore, job, or responsibility you particularly hate. What is it?

And since I hate—HATE—to vacuum, that’s what I wrote about. 100 words about vacuuming as follows:

Jim squealed in delight. He couldn’t believe it, his friends had given him a humanoid for his birthday. A remarkably human looking one. Only the empty eyes gave him away. Apart from that you could easily forget that it wasn’t a human man standing there. And Jim had no problem what so ever to avoid looking at those eye—there were plenty of other things to watch.

“How may I serve, Master?”

Remarkable. “Erm… vacuum.”

“I beg your pardon, sir.”

“Suck the floor!”

“Suck it?”

“Yes, suck it! Be quiet about it, though.”

“I’ll suck and be quiet about it.”
