Monday I went on a fiber diet and lost almost 2 pounds. I had to do the math there because all I really know is that I donated several hundred grams of fiber. It's all for a good cause, well in this case, multiple causes:
- It was just sitting there neglected. It's not like I'll ever be able to knit it all in my lifetime.
- It will be auctioned off this Friday and will benefit the local animal shelter.
- The space vacated by the old yarn will soon find new yarns moving in.
See? Win-win. I'm looking very svelte these days, or at least my stash is.
So on my way to donate the yarn, I left the house and walked past my next door neighbors. They were out in the front yard in the skimpiest bikinis I've seen since I used to wear one. Music was blasting and they appeared to be having a good time. I overcame my urge to knit them cover-ups right on the spot and kept walking. On my way home, I noticed the painting contractors across the street hanging from their ladders and ogling the almost naked sunbathers. I can't help wondering how that job is going to turn out. Smooth.
Needless to say, it's a sunny 85 degrees in the Motor City. Judging by the looks on the painters' faces, I think it may be a little hotter next to my house.
