I knit. And I cook, write, take pictures. All for one low price.

stupid things people do when they are jetlagged

By six hours.

- On the first day after they return, they have to go to the grocery store and stock up on everything, right? People who are jetlagged leave a giant package of toilet paper in the bottom of the cart, and let someone else buy it again. Then they don't realize this until 5 days later, when they need more tp.

- They walk around like zombies from about 2 o'clock in the afternoon on. Because their bodies think it's after dinner and almost bedtime.

- They leave their check book at the cash out at another store, 4 days after they've returned home.

- They drive around on an empty gas tank, because doesn't someone come by and refuel before take-off?

- They knit this beautiful lace stole for a book that it's going to be in, and they are way behind the deadline, and they think they can get up on Sunday morning and knit a whole lot and not make a single mistake. Then they have to tink the same row three times. Then they have to tink another row twice.

- They sit down and blog about the silly things people do that suffer from jet-lag, and they leave the potatoes for the salad on the stove too long and they have to have mashed potatoes instead.

There ought to be a law.

LOL, been there, done that MANY times! Sorry you've been having jet lag, but just remember: this too shall pass. Hang in there!

but you are feeling better, right? And you will be knitting on Thursday night, right? See, all is right with the world (and I love mashed potatoes anyway!)

From the old Ben E Cook song - "Momma said there'd be days like this". And we all have 'em!

But at least you were able to cope by making it sound funny!
