So, todaaaay, THE MOST AMAZING THING HAPPENED!!!
Ok, maybe it’s not that amazing, per se, BUT, SOOOO EXXXCITING (to those of us with empty lives who are easily amused* to an alarming degree.)
While working at the shop…
I encountered the rumored-to-exist-yet-rarely-ever-seen…
STRAIGHT MALE KNITTER!
NO! SERIOUSLY! I SWEAR TO GOD!!
I SAW ONE!!
Not only THAT, but he walked out with $67 of yummy Blue Sky Bulky to make himself a Scarf! (boy has TASTE! and extra CASH!)
Now, before you get all up on my ass, I KNOW that not all male knitters like other boys. It’s just I’m just not sure I’ve ever SEEN ONE that didn’t! In fact, I haven’t met many male knitters, period! So you can only IMAGINE my excitement, no?
The only guys I’ve seen in a yarn store are there to either:
- Pick up something for their wife/girlfriend/mother.
- Sit quietly while said wife/girlfriend/mother fondles 3/4 of the yarn in the store.
- Get change for the meter.
(ONCE a guy came in and bought yarn for himself. But I’m pretty sure THAT guy liked other guys. NOT THAT THERE’S ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT.)
He wasn’t one of those skinny-yet-adorable sensitive indie emo types either! (you know…the ones, of all of them, you’d EXPECT to try the knitting…) He was just an average guy’s guy dude, on his way to/from work, stoppin’ by to pick up some yarn cause he wanted to make himself a scarf (he was kinda cute, too but, um, heh, TOTALLY BESIDE THE POINT!).
I think I was flirting.
totally didn’t mean to.
* easily amused or highly deprived, you decide.
