I was called upon to play bunko again this past week. It turned out, after much ado, and after I was already there, that numbers were miscounted, people were confused, and no substitutes were needed.
Hmmm…it would have been nice to not have to get out at all on the coldest night so far of the season. But as I was already there, and as I had not driven myself, and that they all felt bad, and really wanted me to stay, accommodations were made, and I tag teamed with one player, until another who had a cold left early, at which time, I took over for her.
But while I didn’t play? I was without phone, Kindle or knitting! But then, The Host asked me if I wanted to look at a new knitting book she had just purchased. Oh why not... It was Mason-Dixon Knitting’s Outside the Lines. That cracked me up. I have it (of course) and it gave me a chance to read some I hadn’t read (besides the patterns, I believe MDK to be wonderfully entertaining writing) and scope out the particulars of Metropole.
The other bunko players were a bit confused by the fact that I was okay with my glass of white wine and the knitting book…
And in the end? I won most bunkos so came home with loot. All’s well that ends well.
