I Don't Have to Do This?

Knitting class meets once a week.  Last week the teacher wasn't there.  The week before I was sick.  So today I was there.  I said, "I'm doing this because I read that it will help stave off Alzheimers. The lady subbing for the teacher who still wasn't there said, "It doesn't have to be knitting.  It can be crossword puzzles, reading and following directions, lots of things."
I put my knitting down and said, "I don't have to do this?"
Everybody there said loudly, "Yes, you do!"

  1. I do crossword puzzles in an attempt to keep my brain alert, but sometimes they just make me feel dumber. The New York Times ones are the best. Monday through Wednesday I can do most of the time. (They get progressively harder as the week goes on.) Thursdays make me feel like I don't speak English.
