My Secret Pal Hostess has asked her group to answer a couple of questions;
Someone has stolen your stash and all your books: now what are you going to do?
OMG--OMG--OMG! CALL 911--CALL 911--CALL 911!!
FIRE! FIRE! FIRE!
WHERE'S THE PHONE NUMBER TO THE FBI? ATF(alcohol tobacco & firearms)?
CALL IN THE MARINES---OR THE NATIONAL GUARD!
GET THE POSSE TOGETHER BRING IN THE BLOODHOUNDS!
RAPE-RAPE (because I've been violated)!!
Okay, now that the initial panic is over and the police are here...I demand justice! By this time 4 of the FAB5 (not the ones on tv) are here consoling me, rubbing my feet, bringing me wine--notice I didn't say a glass--etc.
They are also demanding justice and that someone find the filthy, no good, lowdown thieves (I know there are more than one because of the sheer amount of fiber & numbers of books I own). Another wave is hitting me...somebody get me a paper bag I think I'm hyperventilating! My books are gone??!
Now I've called the police chief--at home...I also know where he lives! He has promised me complete satisfaction that the Salem Police Force are fully on this case! I believe him...because he's just that kind of guy!
Assuming you don't let the experience discourage you from ever knitting again, here are some additional items that you could include in your answer...What would be the first thing you'd replace? What would you live without? NEVER KNIT AGAIN....ME??
I've been knitting for more than 25 years you'd have to break my hands to make me quit...even then I think I could knit with my feet! The first thing I would replace are my books...because the thieves left me with my spinning wheel and I've been spinning yarn from the cats fur during my fits of worry and rage...yes, the cat is bald now! The thieves can keep all the fluff yarn...maybe they can make some rope out of it to hang themselves, because that's what there going to want to do when I get a hold of them!
