Yesterday was the last day of school for my children. It was a day to sit in the audience and watch our children accept their hard-earned awards and think thoughts not of rain, but of fun in the sun.
At the end, parents gathered and started discussing with each other what they will be doing with their families over the summer break. That's when it happened. Several parents stopped talking and looked at my hands. Wha? I wasn't drinking an illegal 2nd cup of coffee (although I wanted to!) ... then the comments started flying! "Dee, are you alright?" "Feeling OK?" "Where is your crochet?!"
You know, it is not often that I leave my crochet at home, but yesterday I did. There were some other parents that usually sit in the same row with me, and together we would crochet or knit quietly while listening. But not yesterday. It seems we all left our projects at home. That was weird. I wonder, was the moon full?
