    Just mumble something about buying for your granddaughter.

    Paper clips work as well.

    Knotty my frustration was simply remembering all the guys that had never sewn before commenting how easy it was to make their first hammock. I knew I wasn't holding my mouth just right I just couldn't figure out why. Once I got it there was nothing to it.

    Yeah but silver though. That's gotta be better than pink for my self esteem.

    jk I stopped caring about the looks I get a long time ago.
