LOL I nearly forgot about this conversation from this weekend with my daughter Sarah.
My husband had asked me if I was going to make a scarf or something. I said that I'd thought about it, but it would take too long to complete it. I wanted to MAKE SOMETHING quickly so I was going to make a washcloth.
Sarah pipes up "You mean you're going to USE that?!"
Me (laughing): "Yes, Sarah, of course I'm going to use it! That's the whole point of making something!"
Sarah "Oh but why? You could just buy more washcloths!"
Me: "I could, but I rather like the idea of using something I made! You know, once upon a time people didn't just go to Walmart and buy something they wanted, they had to MAKE it for themselves!"
Sarah "Oh. Oh yeah."
Then I started in on "You know, it used to even be you went out into the sheep pen in back of the house, sheared it's wool off, spun it into yarn and THEN you could use it. " but I lost her I think LOL!
