The Price

So, someone commented on my nickname on MSN, which is currently still at - Dental Girl loves cashmere - .

Him: Cashmere, huh? I'm guessing it's the Burberry kind or some other branded cashmere.
Me: As a matter of fact, no. It's cashmere knitting yarn. I've learnt to knit.
Him: You? Knit? What are you knitting? Making your own Burberry scarves now?
Me: No...I'm learning how to knit sweaters now.
Him: Oh, really? Where's mine? It's getting cold now.

Everybody who reads my blog now know that's the one thing I don't like people to ask.

Me: Do you know how long it takes to knit a sweater? I think you're better off buying one than to wait for me. Either that or we can have a deal. Why not you buy me a Hermes Birkin then I'll knit you a cashmere sweater.
Him: Does everything have to have a price tag to you? you have to do something only if you get something back in return?

That stumped me. I delved into my thoughts.

Here's the thing - I have been generous in my lifetime before and I have given away some of my knitted things. It's just that sweaters are a whole new league of effort and time compared to other items like scarves and cashmere yarn is not cheap. And he has not done anything for me. And we're not that close. And I'm not his girlfriend. And it is a shameless request. So the short answer is, YES, I do put a price tag on everything. Is everybody happy now?

My question is, what has he done that has not has a price tag? Is he going to give me a Hermes Birkin, or anything for that matter - for nothing?

I don't think so.

So yes, maybe Dental Girl is a bitch for not giving away hand knitted cashmere sweaters to people she is not even close to. At least she admits it.
