CARPERPETUATION (kar’ pur pet u a shun) n. The act, when vacuuming, of running over a string or a piece of lint at least a dozen times, reaching over and picking it up, examining it, then putting it back down to give the vacuum one more chance.
No matter how high scale or low tech your vacuum cleaner might be, some of us out there are going to engage in carperpetuation. It could be anything that we think can be sucked up. A string, a cotton swab…. not milk rings. Save those for your cats so they can keep you up at night by playing milk ring hockey all over the kitchen at 3:00 in the morning.
