    So glad no one was with me ...

    I was shopping in Kohl's Department store for new towels. Over the store speakers, they were announcing sales in different departments. I was half listening, but when they said blenders were half off, I snapped to attention. My first thought was "when did Kohl's start selling fabrics????", which I am sure I would have said out loud if someone had been shopping with me. Of course they don't sell fabric- they were talking about the blenders in the kitchen dept. I need to stay out of so many quilt shops so I don't embarrass myself when I am shopping in a dept. store...
    Actually, I was quite disappointed when I found out the blenders were kitchen appliances.

    I can honestly say I would have had that same thought, and I use more blenders in the sewing room than in the kitchen.

    Even though I am fairly new to quilting, such announcement would also give me a pause

    I can see this happening-- My Pops was saying postage stamps went up and I said -thats understandable cutting all those tiny squares is a pain in the butt. His girlfriend starts laughing. She 's crocheting 2 inch squares for a Postage Stamp afghan from a quilt I made for Pops

    Speaking of not hearing correctly..........on a recent flight the lady seated across from me asked about the flight attendant. "Why does he keep walking back and forth saying 'Ten Cents'?" Her husband corrected her and told her the man was saying 'head sets' for the movie. She then replied "Lets get one cause they are really cheap!" He corrected her again by saying the price was $5. She was by this time angry and said "Then they shouldn't say ten cents!" The husband got up and walked away for a bit. We all tried not to laugh
