He said "That's because you like doing all that weird stuff."
Weird stuff. I'm so glad he doesn't try to find a diplomatic way to tell me he thinks all these artsy-crafty stuff is just plain odd. I told him most my friends did a lot of the same things. That I have friends who make cheese at home, make soap, spin, weave, and of course, bead. Who knit gorgeous sweaters for themselves, and crochet doilies. That I'm not at all unusual.
He said that knowing other people who did the same things didn't make me less unusual, it just made my friends weird too.
I pointed out that mom built her own coffee tables. He replied "Well.. your mom was weird too."
I'm half through the fringe on the pouch I'm beading, just taking a quick break. I've been listening to my classical on shuffle, I forgot how much I like Mozart when I'm beading!
