A little bit of this and, a little bit of that, makes a little bit of me.

Weird Science

When my mom is cold, she tells my kids to put on a sweater.

I’m not sure how the heat transfer thing works here.

Apparently being cold does make it easier to catch a cold, but, only if your nose is cold.

Research suggests that–if the lining of your nose is cold–it makes it easier for bugs to become established.

Moral of this story? You can walk around stark naked all winter in safety

as long as you knit yourself a nose warmer!!!

Being cold will make you catch a cold. You must wear slippers in the (heated) house.

Or else, you will be cold and thus get sick. I’m a firm believer of this. As long as you have warm and dry feet, you will never catch a cold. Best reason to start knitting some socks.

My mom used to iron eggplant to get the poison out before cooking it. Yup, she irons everything including towels, fitted sheets, socks, underwear, tea towels, dusters…Then she comes over to my house and irons all my stuff. I recon she spends her entire life cleaning and ironing…

I have a whole batch of eggplant-zucchini pasta in the fridge that’s going to be served tonight. And I have no idea where my iron is. What now?

Never use the toilet during a storm. Lightning will come up through the water and sting your bottom.

Don’t laugh. It actually happened to a neighbor. Her chimney took a direct hit by lightning. The lightning then traveled through the house via the pipes and burned her, who was just getting off the toilet. It did more than sting. It burned her pretty badly and tossed her into the wall.

I will use the toilet during a storm because that was a bit of freak occurrence. I do try, however, to avoid showering during storms with lots of lightning. Just because…

Oooo I just remembered this one! My uncle believed whiskey was a cure-all! If I had a cold, whiskey. If I had hay fever, whiskey. If I was having female monthly pains, whiskey. If I couldn’t concentrate on writing my term paper, whiskey. Hahaha…I miss him!

Don’t tickle several-week-old baby under her chin. You’ll make her stutter!

Don’t blow in her face! You’ll give her distemper! Really.

Ask me again in a few years. My kids are still young, sort of. I will tell you that neither of mine gripped the cash. Let’s hope they’re givers. Nothing would make me prouder as a mother.

Hope you had a good laugh, enjoyed the walk to downtown,

and may even be inspired along the way. (Pictured here is my friend, Terri, owner of Dudley’s Bookshop Cafe. Stop by and say hello next time you are there.)

Tomorrow, I will reveal what’s been cast on my needles…heavens, no. This isn’t my dog and I did NOT knit the sweater 😀

Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!

  1. You Sarah, are just *too much* ! I mean that in a good way. A very good way. I’m impressed with your humor , your attention to detail, your listening skills, and boy, do I just get a kick out of your mom. I think the greatest gift to her would be a cadilac of a steam iron and ironing board, with all the niceties…. she deserves it !

    Ironing eggplant, um… with the same iron you use on your nice linen? 😉 And I can’t wait to see what’s on your needles. xxJen

    • My mom is really funny…and she doesn’t even know it!!! And yes, she uses the same iron for everything…mind you, she is a CLEAN FREAK LOL Me. Not so neat nor clean.

  2. Wow. Some very fun stuff in here. And the wonder of how we all survive our funny childhoods! As a mom now, I’m encouraged by that.
