Should I sit down for a while and knit?
Did you really need to ask?

Cleaning and cooking are highly overrated.

I can't refill my coffee cup if I don't stand up.

I remember seeing someone walking around knitting socks. I don't remember where she had her ball of yarn, maybe in a pocket.

I've seen things about people knitting while running. Even if I were a runner I think I'd not do that. Never run holding a stick - that's one thing I remember having drilled into as a young child.

Yeah, you're right GG, holding two sticks with sharp and pointy ends while running is invoking some odd and uninviting images in my head.

I guess there is always a reason why our parents drilled those lessons into our heads.

Ya think? I learned not to run in the house in the early 1960s. I went head first through a window onto the front porch - and no the window was not open. The window was the old, old glass that shattered into splinters and shards. I don't remember it happening but I heard the story enough to believe it. Somehow I was barely even scratched.

Yikes!! Glad you were okay!! My kid brother ran head first into the corner of this old floor model TV we had once.

It was one of those really old TVs with a domed shaped screen and a shell made out of particle board that had a cover of wood laminate. It had a panel on its front with little dials next to the channel buttons, so you could tune into each channel clearer. There were only 12 channel buttons.

Anyways, it happened when my older brother was babysitting the two of us, much to his chagrin, as Mom and Dad were out having a date night. It wasn't OB's fault as both KB and I were being absolute hooligans for him.

Kid brother got a nasty cut on his forehead from that event and needed to have several stitches. Wasn't the first time he had them though, and not the last either.
