Today, through the power of connectivity, I bought Wollmeise while sitting on the toilet.
You read that right, folks. I bought Wollmeise while engaged in quite antisocial bodily functions, about which I will say no more, so it’s safe to read further.
Even better, I was sitting on the toilet at work. My cell phone chimed its “you have a new text message” chime. I looked. It said The Loopy Ewe had Wollmeise. NOW. My cell phone is a basic cell phone…but I had my iPod in my back pocket. And my place of employ has wireless internet. So, I hopped online, scrolled through four pages of color choices, and tried to make off with a skein of Am Kalten Polar. However, by the time I logged into Paypal and was directed back to the shop site, it had leaped out of my cart like a spawning salmon. Disappointed (it had been on my wish list forever) I tried again, this time reeling in a skein of Wollmeise Sock in Lila Ludmilla:
I used my latest Loopy Frequent Shopper credit, and stuck to one skein since I’ll need shopping cash saved up for Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool! Can’t have everything, I suppose. Goal achieved, I finished up what I had gone there to do in the first place, washed up, and exited the bathroom with the satisfaction of two jobs well done.
