    As I was settling in to read The Happy Hooker last night, while the family watched Big Fish, my crafty 17 yr old dd came out of my room carrying two balls of yarn(mine) and a handful of crochet hooks(also mine), whisked the book out of my hand, and proceeded to sit down and try a new pattern that caught her eye:rolleyes: Maybe if I'm nice to her she'll return the book and stuff and show me how to make nice things too!

    That's nuthin toots, I've heard of a ladies' auxilary group in a little church in Hooker, Oklahoma. They were sitting around trying to think of a name for their little group and someone innocently tossed out the name, "Happy Hookers"..once the wiser ladies wiped the tears from their eyes and were calm again, they gleefully explained why that was just not a bright idea at all:D

    That she is. I just remind her that spending money on books is a good vice to have, unlike others that I could be spending it on.;)
