Repurposed Grocery Bags

If you didn't talk with me this week, you weren't among the people who said, "You're what?"

Charles:  What are you doing?

CarolineNot:  Wah-wahh-wah-wahhh-wahh.

Charles (with a look of consternation):  Well, why don't we just buy some yarn?

CarolineNot:  Uh, maybe you need to look around.  There's no shortage of yarn in the house.

Who made this mess?

Stop lookin' at me!

And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man's work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear: forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.  I Peter 1:17-21


Annie T. said... got me...I can't figure it out! Just WHAT is it you're making???

CarolineNot said...

I'm sorry. I didn't intend to be mysterious. If my memory serves me (yeah, that's a good one), the repurposed sacks are called "plarn" = plastic yarn.

The what am I making -- other than a mess -- is a bit of a poser, even for me. It's a bag. To be sure, it's a bag. The question is: what am I going to do with it?

I could turn it into a giveaway: the person who comes up with the best recommended use of a plastic bag wins the bag. But no one would want it, so everyone would be afraid to tell me what I could do with it, lest it become their prize.
