You can read Carol's entry below.
Ugly Gold Carpet Desparately seeking compastionate judges to consider me for a sleek
new style. Preferably something in the millineum. I need someone who's
good at laying carpet and have soft padding. Must be understanding of what I have
been through. I have obtained Vomit, Mud stains, Dog hair and Carpet Fresh (and
that stuff is like cheap perfume). My threads are tired and can no longer withstand
the torment. Nobody comments on how attractive I am anymore. I am taunted by their
laughter. Constantly I hear them saying "Don't spill anything on the good carpet",
hahaha! "how do you think that makes me feel?" Im old, don't they get it. Thirty
years to be exact. All the other rooms make fun of me. But all in all I have enjoyed
so many holiday's, birthday's and special family get togethers and finally the pitter
patter of grandchildren's footsteps. Oh how they all deserve a fresh new look and
I would be willing to retire. However, If I am not chosen I will proudly continue
to get ripped, spilled on and colored on because I know I am the most gathered place
in this. I will always be below them whether I'm new or old. Submitted by the loving
children of wonderful parents who taught us that family is more important than home
