this comes from the Yahoo Weaving List, thought it funny enough to share here.
There’s a difference between ‘dying’ and ‘dyeing’!
I tell this story on my dye list every couple of years or so:
I was waiting in the supermarket checkout when my husband called to me.
He was holding up something for me to see: “Can we have this with dinner
I replied: “No, I’m going to dye tomorrow, remember? I won’t have time.”
“Oh that’s right, I forgot”, he said and walked off to return the item
to the shelf.
I happened to catch the expression on the face of the woman behind me in
line. Her eyebrows had shot up to her hairline.
