And you wouldn't (okay,YOU would) believe how perplexed people are that'll I'll spend an hour a day for TWO YEARS to finish a crocheted tablecloth that I then GIVE away.

I have another hobby I'm a part of where folks spend thousands of dollars on plastic horses. I've gotten enough stupid questions about that one so I was totally prepared when I entered the shrimp hobby. LOL! And I guess they aren't really stupid questions it is just folks ignorant of the hobbies themselves.

Though I DO get tired of 'do you eat 'em?' when it comes to the shrimp. Sigh.
