    What comment can I make? I don’t understand much of this any better than the girls do!

    What makes Val think knitting is easier to explain? Is it that MONEY has this Magical Mystique?

    Don’t forget that the federal government considers knitting needles a deadly weapon…

    She needs ten ones “for the pot”.

    And she says she’ll stop at Jiffy Mart (for change).

    And the girls are amazed that they sell pot at Jiffy Mart…

    And a poker “pot” is the accumulation of money that players have contributed - both from their “ante” at the start of the hand (a fee to play and receive cards for the hand), and any subsequent bets.

    If Evie takes up knitting, the girls will just think she’s gone from marijuana to heroin.

    I’ve seen the needles, and the damage done…

    Evie should play poker with Annie from “The Meaning of Lila”. Apparently she’s a shark as well. Sad that Alix knows what pot is at her age. My 8-year-old (her birthday is today!! Happy Birthday to my big girl :-)) doesn’t know what pot is, other than something to cook in.

    Don’t tell the girls anything. It makes grandma MUCH more interesting.

    I am reminded of an old song (you’ll see how old from the vocabulary):

    Somebody fink to the fuzz, and we all got busted Somebody fink to the fuzz, say we get high Somebody fink to the fuzz, and we all got busted Somebody fink to the fuzz, it’s a dirty lie.

    Everybody talkin about my pot Judge, the only pot I got Is the pot in which I always do my cookin! How would I know it’s against the law To have a mattress made of Tijuana straw Somebody sold it to me when I wasn lookin!

    *”Pleasant dreams,” he said Pleasant dreams I had*

    and then Somebody fink to the fuzz, and we all got busted Somebody fink to the fuzz, say we get high Somebody fink to the fuzz, and we all got busted Somebody fink to the fuzz, it’s a dirty lie. Nobody here gets high! You know the reason why! We in the POlice eye!
