- After a trip to the body shop due to an unfortunate altercation with a concrete wall in a dark parking garage, a trim piece on my Subaru became disconnected and was dragging along the street. But was my teenage daughter flummoxed? Oh, no! "Surely Mom has some yarn in this car somewhere..."
In addition to our nail clippers and our towels, perhaps we should all be sure to pack a bit of yarn!
