While the battery charges…

After a fun trip back from NYC (eventful trip up there … I should take up running, sprinting across Dulles at 5:30 is a great way to confirm your out of shape-ness; less eventful trip back) I went to G Street today to buy buttons. I browsed and browsed, then snagged a sales woman (loose buttons are kept in boxes behind the counter). I pulled out my sweater so that I could make sure the colors matched (so many shell buttons are more green than blue). She says to me:
“Wow, that’s beautiful. And it doesn’t look like it would be hard to modify to be an adult size!”
I paused, trying to decide if I wanted to be outright mean or just a little mean. Then I said:
“Thanks. It’s for me. I guess this sweatshirt that I’m wearing adds a lot of bulk.” [Typical college style hoodie]
What, cute fitted handknits? Never!
