Assunto:  Appropriate "it's getting old" Re: boring for ...
 
Mensagem:  The girl is saying that the carpet is a boring for her because the carpet lacks color or volume. Maybe it's just too plain simple. Usually the most appropriate would be "this carpet is getting too old for me" meaning that the "carpet is boring her". Maybe she's in an office and while sitting at her desk spends too much time looking at the carpet.
