Here’s an odd observation:
Everyone knows what a car is,
Everyone knows what a pet is,
So what exactly is a carpet?
A pet for cars? A way to pet a car?
No, it’s manmade fur for your floor.
You get to brush it (vacuum it).
You get to clean it.
You get to care for it.
With that in mind, carpet is almost like a pet, only it doesn’t eat.
Strawberries are not made from straw, they don’t taste like straw and the strawberry plant is not straw.
To paraphrase the Bard: A strawberry by any other name would still not be straw.
Thanks for reading, sorry I didn’t have anything more interesting tonight.
