What do you think of when you think of a knitter?
(Real knitters need not answer...
you already know you're a vital, vibrant
and exciting woman!)
Sadly, many people conjure up an image
somewhat like the one above when
they hear the word "knitter."
I spent this Sunday afternoon sitting on my porch,
Walkman ear buds firmly fixed in my ears,
knitting, of course.
Do you see me above?
Here's the rub --
I've been listening to the
50 SHADES trilogy.
(I'm actually about mid point of the second book.)
You cannot have missed the hype about these books:
NY Times bestsellers,
labeled "Mommy Porn,"
explicit sex scenes,
etc., etc., etc.
So, combine your image of a knitter
with someone listening to those books.
It makes a funny picture, doesn't it?
Here's my take on it.
When reading these books you've got to
remember to separate fantasy from reality,
DO NOT expect Jane Austin,
and prepare to be...
(I will never be able to hear that expression again
and feel the same way about it.)
