Just a few more lines rows

A few days ago I sat down at the dining room table to knit a couple of rows on a sock. It was about 5:30 p.m., so knitting wasn't really what I should have been doing; dinner was not prepared and the kids were squabbling and the house was a mess, but well, there you have it.

DH came in from work a few minutes later and was surprised to find me sitting and knitting at that time of day. "I just needed to do a couple of rows," I told him. "It's been that kind of a day."

There was a long pause, and then he asked, "Is that similar to doing a few lines?"

"A little healthier," I told him, "but almost as addictive."
