In honor of Buy a Friend a Book week, I ran a contest to see if anyone could guess my other hobbies besides reading. I had millions of entries, but only one lucky winner.
I do not:
- snort crystal meth
- make soap
- swim in the Hudson river
- teach the deaf to sing
- collect used bubble gum
- make model sailing ships out of toothpicks
Someone guessed online scrabble, but I picked up that hobby after the contest began, so that’s wrong, too.
Reader Beth guessed:
knitting! bitching! praying! do I win?
Reader Beth is very competitive.
Praying, well, I don’t consider that a hobby so much as something I don’t do nearly enough of.
Bitching, also not a hobby, more like a besetting sin (see “praying”)
But knitting! Oh, knitting! Merino, alpaca, intarsia, entrelac; baby booties, hats, scarves, pillows–I am obsessed! And addicted. So, my dear Beth, you are the lucky winner of a book of your choice up to $15!
