Slices of Life: One Hoover balances out a hoarder
Placeholder Image
Years ago, someone at our house (okay, me) gave my husband the nickname, "Hoover," and like a piece of toilet paper on a tennis shoe in a restaurant bathroom, the name stuck. He remains our Hoover to this day. The name doesn't come from a reference to the U.S. president or from the first director of the FBI, although they would be first-rate role models from which to borrow a nickname.
