or two from the rather bad day I had today. (Nothing really wrong, just your typical busy Monday frustrations).
First of all, a little uplift to my day, I am participating in a 3 month fiber swap and I received my first swap package today! a bit over 4 oz. of superwash BFL, some sachets with what I think is peppermint and chamomile? and some natural wool I believe. Gorgeous! What fun it is to get a swap package!
Additionally, crafty coworker reminded me of a story about Bug today which I am not sure that I shared.
One evening, as Bug and I were deciding what to eat, she told me she wanted “pickled peppers.” I giggled, and then decided to call her bluff. I said, “OK Bug, I’ll give you some pickled peppers, but I am not sure you are going to like them.” She told me indeed she would, and that she’d REALLY like to have pickled peppers for dinner. I really think she had no idea that I might have some around.
She doesn’t know my secret love of pepperoncini’s though….
So I got down a can of pepperoncini’s and told her to come have some. She said, “what do they look like?” She came into the kitchen and I handed her a pepper. She looked at me, started to giggle and handed it back. I said “What? I thought you WANTED a pickled pepper!” She said, “HHmmm….maybe I am not hungry for those after all, but I want to see YOU eat one!” So I did, much to her delight.
