Arriving at work yesterday, I greeted the security guard as is my custom. He's been our security guard for the last 3 years. Yesterday, after saying hi to me, he said:
"I've seen you knitting." (or something to that effect - unlike Archie Goodwin, I can't recall conversations verbatim).
I was a little surprised, and already halfway through the doorway to the stairwell. I turned back and replied that it was my favourite hobby. I didn't quite know what else to say and I was also a couple of minutes late.
While climbing the stairs, I pondered his comment and then kicked myself for not pursuing his statement with more curiosity.
I hope we can revisit this most interesting of topics at a future time :)
