she suddenly awoke, screaming, and clutching her beautiful red hair! (Which was thankfully still attached to her head).
That's right, it had all been a dream, the shopping, the knitting, the bunny who didn't properly worship the malabrigo.
Whew!
She got up out of bed, her tummy rumbling. She was about to slip on her pink and fushia felted clogs, when she noticed...

Oh shoot said the evil frog, I told you the magic words, now I will have to take away your powers of gauge. He laughed an eeevail froggie laugh as his froggie finger floated towards his little green mouth.

The song came unbidden to her lips, and burst through..."It's not easy being green...", BUT as she was singing to the evil little froggie,

...she noticed; not only was the booga bag a beautiful paisley, but the entire ROOM was paisley! And also, spinning, in psychadellic neon colors.

After a quick visit by her local CSI detectives, they determined she'd touched the frog, then applied lip balm with her pinky.

It was the equivallent of toad-licking.

YES, it's true, our dear knitter was on an acid trip.

A housecall by, strangely enough, Dr. House, who is dreamy and also my husband, followed.
