Ring-A-Day: Vacuum Ring

I had a Scottish roommate that would always do the “Hoovering” on Sunday. Folks in the UK tend to take a tool’s name and use it as a verb. It’s the lucky brand in America that becomes a Band-Aid, Kleenex, or Jell-O instead of the generic bandage, tissue, or gelatin. Americans like Googling, but Hoovering still hasn’t caught on.
