The following took place last night at work...
"Thank you for calling the Emergency Department. This is Bill. How can I help you?"
(Yes, I do really answer the phone in the ER with those exact words!)
"Bill, it's Rebecca in Triage. There is a guy out here who is KNITTING! I think it's a sweater"
"I'll be right there!"
Apparently emergencies come in all forms in our little neck of the woods. So I RUSHED to grab a pen and paper, wrote down "www.MenWhoKnit.com" and made mt way to Triage... to find the poor man being accosted by women in the waiting room. He was, indeed, knitting... a five cable scarf reminiscent of the "Irish Hiking Scarf"
I introduced myself and asked if he had heard of our little INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY (which he had not) so I chatted briefly about the glories of networking with only the finest group of male knitters on the planet... and he took the note with this web address.
Another emergency diverted. Another life saved.
