Today’s Would You Rather comes straight from one of our favorite Dose Peeps, y’all. When the amazing Dana from Kiss My List suggested it, emails flew back and forth between Lisa and me as we discussed the awesomeness of her idea and how lucky we are to have the greatest readers on the planet!
The house my grandmother lived in had a carpeted kitchen. It was a Berber style carpet, which made it slightly less gross than a full shag carpet look. Still, though, when I think of the germs that must have been contained in that room (because running the old Bissell sweeper across it each night could not have been enough) I kind of want to cry. And then I think of my own kitchen and pretty much just gag at the thought of it being carpeted.
Good news is that this carpet would render you blind anyway, so you wouldn’t need to worry so much about unsightly stains!
Clearly, the thought of a carpeted kitchen has left us all rocking in the corner, so we should probably just assume that the second option is the winner, right?
When Robert and I were house hunting, we found our dream home. Except for one tiny, little detail. The master bathroom (which was huge and contained my dream shower, complete with bench for easy shaving) was fully carpeted. Think the softest, plushest, carpet you can imagine. And then think of the mildew and the constant state of dampness that would occur. Don’t even get me started on the toilet area being carpeted.
Taking the carpet all the way up to the toilet paper holder is really a nice touch.
It really is like the worst of two options. Do you want germs in your kitchen or in your master bathroom? Can you ever really feel clean in a fully carpeted bathroom? Can you ever really feel comfortable eating in a fully carpeted kitchen?
Which one would you choose? And just to make it more interesting…you can’t change it once you choose it. This is for the rest of your life y’all. So choose wisely!
And by the way, anytime you have a good Would You Rather idea, send it our way! We love audience participation!
