I'm a bad host

Company is coming tomorrow. My friend Sandy, who has kindly hosted me a number of times, is driving over to spend the night and hang out with me and Kim and Kevie, who are staying near my comic store at a hotel. This is the first time that I have had overnight company that I’m not having sex with since 1998, when Dan crashed on my couch, and I want to make a good impression.

Unfortunately my vacuum, a seven or eight year old beast handed down from my mom, just died, halfway through the apartment. Even worse, I started at the bedroom and was working my way forward, so the living room, where Sandy will spend most of her time, is only half vacuumed. Now I half to figure out a way to get her to only look at the vacuumed half.

Perhaps I could shut the blinds, unscrew the lightbulbs, and only illuminate the apartment through flattering, obscuring candlelight?

Let her move around your action figures, that will distract her from the floor. It worked for me.
