The clepto carpet

We inherited a beautiful Persian carpet from relatives who immigrated. It is plush and colourful with a bold black background. We decided to put it into our bedroom and it is there that I discovered it’s mischievous, secret addiction. If I take off my slippers next to the bed, they are nowhere to be seen in the morning. I have lost shoes, cell phone chargers, handbags and even the dog on this carpet. It is only when I close my eyes and feel around the floor, or stand on a yelping pet that I know it is not really the camouflage carpet, but my inability to see detail. The surprises on the floor keep me chuckling.

Our next carpet will be monochrome!!
