There is very little in the way of knitting to discuss.
KN, Item #1: The red Sophie bag is progressing. It is going somewhat more slowly than the first, of course. Ya'll know me so this isn't news.
KN, Item #2: I started my Grandmother Purl square. Actually, I got about 3/4 through my Grandmother Purl square. Then I decided I didn't like it so I ripped it out. I started it over and I'm about 8 rows in on the new one. We'll see if I like this one any better.
KN, Item #3: I have another little something I am knitting on. If it works out to be worth talking about, I'll tell you about it then.
In Non-Knitting News...
It has been a funny week. Actually a funny couple of weeks. With a nod to Dr. B, some of these fall under her favorite category and mine: overheard.
NKN Item #1: Last night I went to pick up dinner for my flu-infested husband. (Apparently mashed potatoes from KFC are the balm that soothes a tempermental tummy.) The guy who took the order? His name was "Math-you".
Sidenote: And before you ask what I was doing at KFC by myself: I can drive left-footed. It isn't easy and it isn't pretty but it will do in a pinch.
Item #2: In the doctor's office waiting room, about to have x-rays, I saw an elderly couple in a heated conversation. (I think they thought they were whispering.) I only caught the tale end of it but this is what I heard:
Him: You can't tell him that. He will think I don't satisfy you.
Her: (in a kindly voice) You don't, dear.
Item #3: Again at the doctor's office waiting room, this time with my husband, I saw a little boy playing with a littler girl. He took her blocks and she started to cry. He said, "Stop crying. You act just like mom." A now-sheepish Mom made him return the stolen blocks.
Item #4: In my job as a secretary, I take lots of calls from telemarketers. Yesterday I finally had the great pleasure of speaking to a realistic one. After telling him that my boss was in a meeting, I said, "Can I take a message and have him return your call?" He said, "No thanks. We both know that he doesn't really want to talk to me anyway so let's not waste the paper."
