I put a period instead of an exclamation point after that title because it’s actually meant to be sarcastic.
Speaking of sarcastic, have you heard about the new sarcasm punctuation point? Ralph wanted to know if I’d be making use of it since he claims I’m the most sarcastic person he knows. First, Ralph should meet more people. Second, if you have to explain to someone that you’re being sarcastic it means you aren’t doing it right or they’re incapable of getting sarcasm, with or without the special punctuation mark.
And now I’m sidetracked. I was talking about the title of today’s post. I’m telling Martha Stewart to watch out because as soon as I finish talking to you I’m going to….gulp…Craft Day at my friend Tanya’s. Tanya is skilled at the making of crafts. Every time I’m at her house, I mentally photograph at least one cute, creative idea that I think I can actually do myself. I am not so skilled at the making of crafts. It’s a long, long story and maybe we’ll talk it about it on another day when I have more time.
About a month ago (Tanya is also very organized and makes use of a box of squares that she calls a “calendar.”), she asked if my youngest two could come over to make a Valentine’s craft. We can, so we are. I get to bring the snacks. I think I missed out on my opportunity to be part of the crafting process when Tanya texted me yesterday to see if I had any white tempera paint that I could bring and I told her I’d never owned my own tempera paints. I thought you had to have actual proof that you were a teacher to own your own and wasn’t aware you could just buy it over-the-counter. Apparently they sell it at stores to anyone who wants to buy it. Who knew?
So I have to leave now so that we won’t be late for the crafting. Apparently tempera paint will be involved. I’m pretty sure hilarity will ensue.
I hope you have a crafty day, too. Indulge your creative side today. Doodle on the notepad that you keep by your phone. Martha wouldn’t count it as crafting, but I will.
