We’re in the new house and I just fired the Roomba off for the first time. This house is a lot bigger than our last one, and the Roomba was basically roaming the entire first floor.

It’s been running for about 40 minutes now. Within seconds of walking downstairs (I’m working upstairs) it turned, grimaced, and headed straight for my feet. Considering the floorspace involved, the statistical odds of this happening are low. Very low. And that’s not counting the grimace.

We have a lot of tile, and the Scooba is sitting in the garage, waiting for some floor scrubbing action. But I’m worried they’ll team up. I’m even more worried the Scooba will convert its cleaning fluid into a deadly nerve agent.
