Lost Arts studio

A lot of the fiber arts I enjoy are things like tatting, netmaking, chair caning, and even weaving, where people will come up to me when I demonstrate and solemnly tell me, "That's a lost art."

Young Enough to Learn

I was reading Donna's post about being fascinated by words, and I thought I'd share a kid story.

The other night I told our son my mom aggro radius increased every time I had to repeat what I told him to do.

He gave me a surprised look. "Do you even know what that means?" he asked.

"Why don't you explain it to me," I said, "and I'll tell you if that's how I meant it."

So he carefully explained a World of Warcraft monster's aggro range, and I agreed that that was how I meant it.

"What's your aggro radius right now?" he asked cautiously.

"About arm's length," I said. "Now GO BRUSH YOUR TEETH!"

I love it! I've got to remember that one; my aggro radius also decreases rapidly relative to the number of repetitions it takes to get anything done -- I wonder if my students would understand that one, too?

Oh, too funny. Hit them in their secret vocabulary!

Great news about that sourcing elsewhere.
