I should take up knitting

  1. I love serendipity. It just so happens I had a weird dream about knitting last night. In the dream I am stuck on a hilly, snow-covered road in the woods and can’t move my car. I am frustrated because I know I cannot make it on on foot due to being disabled. After this the scene changes and I’m in a 4-wheel drive pickup truck in Prospect Park in Brooklyn. Only the snow is gone and the park is massively larger than it is in real life and surrounded by pronounced rolling hills.

    I drive into a clearing and there are multiple bulletin boards each with the name of a different class being offered in the park, and I think that only in a big city like New York could you find enough instructors for classes like this and quickly realize no such classes are likely to exist in the rural area where I live. It is somewhat dark and I can’t read the signs so I pull up next to one to read it with the headlights and the name of the class is….

    …KNITTING in all caps!

    This is so weird I just had to share it. Maybe if you go to a knitting class there is a PROSPECT of you finding the man of your dreams, a peddler of exotic herbs in the PARKing lot or the keys to a free pick-up so you will not get stuck in 1/2 inch of ABQ snow 🙂

    • Do you think people who knit are into bud? Somehow, I doubt it. And finding the man of my dreams at a knitting class? I wonder if the odds of that are higher than the odds of winning the lottery. 🙂

      The snow in the Q doesn’t hang around for long, so I doubt I will ever get stuck in it. But if I move to Colorado or Oregon…

      I’m just glad you’re not having pornographic dreams about me. 😀


      • Such a cynic! Serendipity reveals the secrets of the universe to you through the dreams of an anonymous stranger and your response is…


        You will be pleased to know I was the main attraction in this particular revelation and you were not seen running naked through the snow with nothing on but a pair of knitted socks and a bad haircut. So a career as a stripper in Alaska may not be in your future 🙂

        • I’m not a cynic. I’m a realist. (But I’m not sure there’s a difference.)

          Running naked through the snow sounds like fun, but it’s been ages since I could run. (I’m not rhyming on purpose.) But if you were able to get a good look at my funky haircut, I’m thinking it would be more of a nightmare than a revelation. 🙂

          I worked at a strip club once (as a waitress). Do you know Rick’s Cabaret in Houston? I remember one of the dancers ran into a dickhead one night, who said he didn’t want a table dance because her breasts were too small. She said, dude, don’t you know that my small breasts just make your dick look bigger? 😀

  2. I had a friend who worked as a bartender at a strip club. She made $300.00 or more cash every night and the dancers made over $1,000. This was over 20 years ago. I never got the appeal of these clubs to men let alone some of the women who go to them. The female form loses all its appeal when it is being waved in my face to extract money from my wallet. My friend assured me most such women were not gay or bi or there to meet guys, it was just a thing with some women. They say heterosexual women prefer lesbian porn so perhaps watching naked women dance has a similar appeal.

    • After my short experience at the club, I thought I had learned a lot about men. They really act differently within those walls. But that was when I was younger and thought I knew everything. 🙂

      As for the dancers, there were good ones and bad ones. Some just wiggled around on the stage, while others put a whole routine together. (But mostly, they just wiggled around on stage.) And the women in that work environment really weren’t very friendly, I guess because we were all chasing the same dollars (and for some, chasing the same men).

      I never found out if most were gay or not, but I know the few times I went to a female strip club, I was certain all those guys were gay (which I later found out was true). Still, it’s all about the money.
