lys owner: hi, is jennifer there?
hubby: no, she’s at work, can i take a message?
lys: yes, this is ____ at the yarn store, can you let her know her special order is in?
hubby: wow, i didn’t know she was special ordering things now…
lys: oh, isn’t your wife jennifer, who dyes?
hubby: ummm…uh, well, i guess she’s going to die someday…but i don’t like to think about that…
lys: (realizing she called the wrong person) oh dear, i think we have a mix-up. you’re not married to jennifer, who dyes her own yarn, are you?
hubby: no, she doesn’t dye yarn, but she sure does buy a lot of it!
yes, this really happened. my husband is still confused, and i think my lys owner almost laughed until she wet her pants. i am forever known now as “jennifer-who-doesn’t-dye”.
