When I arrived in the office this morning, Michele and Stefanie were laughing so hard they could barely even speak. The first thing I thought was, "Gee...I didn't think I looked THAT bad."
When they could finally spit out a few coherent words, they told me that there's a couple outside in a car...and they're...well...we try to run a G-rated blog here so I won't tell you what Stef and Michele told me that couple was doing.
As honest as I think Stef and Michele might be, I didn't believe them. So I walked outside myself and had a look.
Well, heavens to mergatroid! There they were in broad daylight, at 10:00 a.m., at a yarn shop, testing the shock absorbers on their Mustang.
Now, as all of you know, I'm a nature lover. So I pulled out my telephone and took a photograph. (And to think that Alex kept asking me, "Why do you want a camera on your phone?!")
After what seemed an eternity (because I'm a very old lady) the couple poked their heads up, saw me waving to them, and high-tailed it out of here as quickly as they could.
I thought I'd share this story with you because I can't tell you how many times I'm asked, "Does anything exciting ever happen at Yarnmarket?"
The answer is: Yes. It does. And when it does, I'm ready with my camera phone to capture it for all eternity.
UPDATE: Alex refuses to let me change our slogan to:
The world's most romantic yarn shop.
