…a Six Sentence Story where the given word is Knot – although actually, it is!
‘When is a knot not a knot?’ she asked me.
I had not a notion, but not wishing to appear a nitwit I took a guess and said ‘when it’s knitting.’
‘No you nutcase’, she said, ‘knitting is lots and lots of knots knitted together’.
That was not something I could disagree with, so not knowing what else to suggest I gave in and asked her to tell me when a knot is not a not.
‘I don’t know’, she said, ‘that’s why I asked you!’
I changed the subject by telling her that the guy who invented velcro thought … ‘why not?’
