I received a summons to report for jury duty tomorrow. Oh good, I thought... quality knitting time.
Wrong. I called the office of the Butte County Jury Commissioner and a deputy said, "No knitting needles". There was no interest in hearing what kind of needles I use. All he knew was "no knitting needles".
I guess nobody has figured out a way to use a book as a weapon, because books are okay.
It's a good thing reading is just as much fun as knitting :-)
