The apartment needs to be dusted. I can see
some cat hair, and the carpet doesn't
soak it all in, even though it does a better job
then those damn hardwood floors
that I'm so used to. Everyone seems to want
hardwood floors in their home, but why?
They are loud and look dirty quickly.
And dust doesn't settle on them, so the air
always has things floating in it.
But carpet, carpet muffles the loud noises,
it keeps your feet warm when you step
out of bed on a cold winter morning,
it makes things more pleasant.
You have to vacuum it, true, but you
don't need a mop. You have to be more careful
that you don't spill things. But you shouldn't
be spilling things in the first place, right?
Well, anyway, I have to remember to dust
this apartment. It should be perfect.
You can't see the dust here, the carpet
doesn't let all the dust get into the air
but you have to make sure that you clean it
more often. Is it worth the effort? I think it is.
