Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

Is it Lucifer approved?

DH and I were at a local salad buffet restaurant the other night, and a largish family sat down in the next booth.  One of the androgynous toddlers was droning, "..round and round, round and round, round and round, round and round, round …" scarcely pausing to breath, surely not pausing to eat, from the time they sat down until we got up and left. My compassionate, rational self realized that it may have been  autism or some similar problem and sent a world of blessings to the parents..  But another part of me thought, "My friend with perfect pitch would run screaming form the building.  This would be hell for her!"

And I began to dwell on what would be hell for other musicians.  Salieri and Jimmy Hendrix doing duets for a heavy metal audience.  Janis Joplin singing really liberal folksongs for a redneck roadhouse  where they throw bottles at the performers. Oh, and for the bad audiences, Woodstock with more rain, more bad acid, no food, no toilets, and yellow jacket nests all over the field.  And all the naked chicks are in their fifties.

Then I began to branch into other areas of celebrity.  Mary Lou Retton has to judge Arnold Swartzenager on the uneven parallel bars.  Naked.   Peter O'Toole has to play the lord of a faux-haunted Irish castle, (oh, wait, I think that's already happened.)  OK, Clint Eastwood stars in a musical - (- Hmm, that's already happened, too.)

Well, what can  you come up with?

    Anyone having to listen to drunk mariachi band/karaoke singers at 2am. Yeah, it's been done and it's not pretty.

    Okay, the mental image of (old) Arnold on parallel bars naked is going to haunt me the rest of they day. Ewwww!!!

    Here's my offer - Yngwie Malmsteen at a amateur free-form jazz festival. I think he'd be tearing his hair out screaming withing 3 minutes.

    Can you imagine how the parents lives must be like? We only have to endure for a short time, they for a lifetime. Even loving their "special" child still does not make it always easy to endure.
    You were an angel.

    In the car, on a steep hill with a red light. The car has a clutch and the light only turns green long enough for one car to go through. The air conditioning is broken and it's a HOT day.

    A room full of your favorite yarn and no needles or hooks.

    A cross stitch project with the most beautiful pattern, silks, etc, but no needles.

    And so on - pick your fiber art.
