Story: trouble on the horizon?

I'm getting ready to attend our local monthly crochet meeting.  It's a fun time for us all to get together and share what's new, our crochet sightings, crochet accomplishments and such. 

So, while I'm getting ready, I thought I'd take a few moments and climb on stage here and tell the tale of two crocheters instant messaging each other yesterday.  We'll call this story "Trouble on the horizon?"  (it's a true story, only some of the names have been changed to protect the yarnaholics)

CroFanRP [7:57 AM]: good morning, dee!
CroFanRP [7:57 AM]: 
what time is your bead class this afternoon?
CrochetWithDee [7:59 AM]: good morning ... the bead class today starts at 12:45 ...   
CroFanRP [8:00 AM]: hey dee...
CroFanRP[8:01 AM]: we sold out of those needle threaders with the big white handles
CroFanRP [8:01 AM]: 
michael's didn't have them either
CrochetWithDee [8:01 AM]:  you can use mine  
CroFanRP [8:01 AM]: 
oh cool
CroFanRP [8:01 AM]:  thanks!
CroFanRP [8:09 AM]: 
oh dee my daughter is coming home on monday and my yarn is in her room!  What am I to do???  LOL! 
CrochetWithDee [8:11 AM]:  go to home depot and purchase a tool belt.  Then, pack the little pockets &such with yarn, hooks, beads & such.  Wear it for when she arrives home and say, "Oh sweetie, I'm glad you're here.  I'm redecorating your room -- I hope you love the changes as much as I do!" 
CrochetWithDee [8:11 AM]:  :D  
CroFanRP [8:11 AM]: oh that's so very funny!  she's a knitter, she'd love it! 
CrochetWithDee [8:12 AM]:   (I'm just getting to my coffee now and cannot be held responsible for my actions until I drink it)
CrochetWithDee [8:12 AM]: then you should do it   
CroFanRP [8:12 AM]: i know!  hubby's supposed to be bringing some home!
CrochetWithDee [8:12 AM]: it would be a riot   
CroFanRP [8:12 AM]: 
it would be too funny wouldn't it?
CrochetWithDee [8:13 AM]: 
for her sake, you can put a pair of knitting needles on your tool belt   
CroFanRP [8:13 AM]: hahahahhaaa!  I just may do it!  

                                   (insert applause here)


Thank you. Thank you.  (I bow my head with gratitude.)

So now you all know that Lori was right, the proof is in the pudding, or in this case, in the transcript of an instant message session ... I admit I can be a bit of an eccentric -- especially when I've yet to have my first cup of coffee in the morning! (speaking of coffee, where is my cup?!)  LOL

Now, if we can get images of "CroFanRP" wearing the yarn-packed tool belt when her daughter comes home, and of her daughter's expression -- oh, to be a fly on the wall!!!  

Have a great Sunday!

ROTFLMAO!!!!!!!  If it were me, and my yarn were in the same room as a visiting knitter, I'd be building a lock box!!!  I can just see the picture in my mind of someone with a tool belt full of yarn, needles, scissors, tape measure, a hook or two....  You're not right!!!  Hugs, Sheila
