If all else fails they say the truth will set you free, but I'm not sure who "they" are.
Thnx for the help. I might try trimming it up a bit but my carpet is also not the right type for ghetto repairs. It's kinda woven in so making a cut could be disasterous since it could unravel more. I'm trying to fnd the right excuse to tell my dad. I think I'm gonna say it was a hookah my friend brought and he dropped a coal and out of panic we did a quick fix.
