I may be on a yarn diet, but I'm not on a book diet. And if the book is about yarn & knitting, so much the better. I kind of feel like I got over on someone that way. I cannot pass up $1 books, especially when they used to be $30+. Not these little knit books, but a couple others that I picked up had been much more.
My bookstore plan was to: load up on mags & books, then sit in the children's area & read while C played with the Thomas the Train set that Barnes & Noble very conveniently places there for the sanity of all parents. That's what we usually do. However, C had very different plans. His bookstore plan was: Lull Mom into a false sense of serenity, then, just when she's good & settled, act like a total goober. That means scream for no reason & whatever she does to appease you, yell for the opposite. When she picks you up, scream to be put down; the moment your toes touch the floor, holler to be picked back up.
Mm hmm, fun times, people, fuuuuuunnnnnn times.
Skip to Plan B: Zoom to the register with armful of books (hey, if I don't like it, it's only $1, it can be passed on), thank goodness I remembered deodorant this morning because now I am hot & sweaty (did I just give new meaning to the phrase "hot mama"?), pay for books while completely ignoring the Look of Pity the (undoubtedly childless) clerk is bestowing upon me & run out the door, hiding behind bags because I don't want people to identify me later.
See that book that says "simple knits for little cherubs"? Change "cherub" to "spawn from child hell" & you'll know who I'm knitting for.Pin It Now!
