Today, as I sat plunking away at the computer, my daughter came up behind me. She had a rectangular fabric in her hand which she promptly placed on my head.
"What the heck are you doing?" I asked. I wasn't exactly pleased having that thing on me.
"Making a hat," my daughter said.
"Yeah. For Schultz."
Okay. I don't know what made her think that I'd be a good model for that sort of thing, because the last time I looked, I didn't have large pointy ears sticking up off the top of my head. (Schultz, in case you don't know, is our big German Shepherd dog.)
"Just stay still while I figure out where the ear holes go."
I made a face and continued plunking.
A short while later, the measurements were taken, and the hat was completed. My daughter asked Schultz to sit while she gently placed the hat on his enormous head.
And guess what? It was a perfect fit!
