The hardest working appliance these days is the small Vornado fan. It circulates the air! It drowns out the dog's snoring! It silences the smoke detector, which goes off every time I cook!
Have also discovered that propped up on the counter and strategically pointed, it also allows me to chop piles of onions without crying like a little girl.
And come to think of it, I think I will start carrying the fan around with me for pointing it at people who I think are evil. It can be my way of public service. Because nothing says "spawn of the devil" like blowsy hair.
