I Almost Did It

I almost did a lot of things today,  right now a vacuum is sitting five feet a way from me, all plugged in ready to go. It has the potential to vacuum, I however do not plan on using it, and I do plan on telling my wife I almost did.

Saying I almost did it is very different than saying no I did not vacuum, hopefully she will think maybe I received a phone call or had some more important business to attend to.
