On Pins & Crochet Needles


Ginger: I love that I always know where to find you in the bookstore.

Ruby: Hmm?

Ginger: Honestly, if I don’t see you in the romance section, I know I can find you in the craft section.

Ruby: Sorry, I sort of got caught up in this book…

Ginger: Crochet patterns?

Ruby: Yeah…

Ginger: I thought you did more knitting than crochet.

Ruby: Well, yeah, but this looked interesting…

Ginger: Creepy Crawly Crochet? RUBY. YOU MUST HAVE THIS BOOK.

Ruby: Must I?


Ruby: Please stop shouting. We’re in a bookstore – keep your voice down.

Ginger: Ruby. If you do not buy this book, I will buy it for you.

Ruby: Really? Because you think I’m going to crochet you a few zombies for Christmas?

Ginger: Don’t be ridiculous. I want that crochet C’thulhu from the cover for Christmas. The zombies are my birthday present. Clearly.

Ruby: Clearly. You know I’m already knitting you another scarf, right? And two more projects lined up after that -all for you.

Ginger: Look, you like to stay busy…I like to have handmade optical illusions wrapped around my neck in the winter. It’s really a win-win.

Ruby: Sure it is.

Ginger: Crocheted. Zombies.

Ruby: I know…but this keeps ME busy. What do we get you to keep YOU busy?

Ginger: Oh, we have that covered. Have you heard of the Somerton Man?

Ruby: Should I?

Ginger: I’m going to crack the code. And solve the mystery. I’m buying this book.

Ruby: …Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam? Do I really want to know?

Ginger: I’ll tell you all about it while you drive us to get coffee.

Ruby: …okay, but I’m not drinking any more coffee today.

Ginger: You’ve only had one cup! Of decaf!

Ruby: Do you want me to let you buy this book of crochet patterns for me or not?

Ginger: …okay, fine.
