I've just been out into town. When I got back, one of my mum's friends was in the front room. They were both crocheting and talking. As I sat down to take my boots off, the friend said, "why don't you learn to crochet, Brian, then you can join our knit & natter classes?" I said, "no." She said, "well, there you go then," as if it were my fault I a) didn't crochet, b) didn't want to crochet, and c) didn't want to talk to pair of old biddies twice my age with nothing in common with me. Just a bit upset now.
