There's been an unexpected new addition to our living room this week!
Cory works (very) part-time at Rona, and this past weekend, a friend from highschool happened to be there, searching for an area rug for their new house. He spotted Cory and asked if he could get him a discount on the thing, and being the nice guy that he is, Cory used his employee discount to help a buddy out. He ended up getting the thing for a great price and the guy came to pick up the rug last night.
Unfortunately, tonight he got a call from said guy who was not digging the rug in his space. He actually said it was attracting lint and wanted to return the thing. So of course Cory said no problem and the guy dropped it off. Earlier in the evening, I had mentioned (jokingly) that I'd look at the rug and see if I liked it, just to get Cory to stop whining about having to take the darn thing back.
When I came down from my nap 3 hours later ( sue me, I wasn't feeling great...), I took one look at the rolled up rug and immediately veto'd it. Yes it was cream and shaggy, which was what I envisioned for the space even before it was finished being built, but there were long shimmery pieces of wool, and I thought it looked kinda cheap, so I didn't even bother with it.
