Today my mother saw my wish list on the fridge. When she saw that I had "Options" listed, she asked what they were.
When I explained what they are, and that I think I'll like them (might know soon Crossed Fingers) she asked why I needed more knitting needles as I have a lot of my Grandmother's needles.
My father piped up in my defence...
"Well, its like drill bits. You never know what you are going to have to drill through, so its important that you have all sorts of drill bits so that when it comes time, you can drill the hole you need!"
Thanks Dad! [now why would a Financial Speaker use that analogy?]
