If you crochet a man some slippers, he will wear them and be happy and cozy.
But if you teach a man to crochet slippers, he will be infinitely more helpful at Christmas-present-making time.
And if after learning of his new hobby, you find yourself tempted to question his manliness, I say 'go for it.' Just one rule: you can only tease him if you too wear a bullet-proof vest to work every day.
That's what I thought.
