Lost for something to say?

Recently my husband and I were invited to a family gathering.  I told my husband I had RSVP'd to his cousin saying that we would not be able to attend. 

"I can't imagine what we would have talked about to a group of people that we didn't know.  I'd last twenty minutes talking to each one and then what?  Nothing," he said and then added, "You'd last thirty."

"Why would I last ten more minutes?" I asked perplexed.

"Because you quilt."  I had to laugh although he was probably right.  The people that were attending were either our age or older and the probability was that several people in the group quilted.  Still I hadn't thought of quilting, outside of my quilt group, as riveting conversation.  I must drag this topic out the next time I am stuck for something to say.

"So, do you quilt much?"
"What is the newest quilt tool you've bought?"
"Seen any good rulers lately?"
"Do you know the proper way to say F-I-S-K-A-R?"
"Have you seen the latest fabric line of ______?"

New t-shirt slogans

Recently my husband and I were at a craft show doing a book signing.  Looking around I saw several people wearing t-shirts with an athletes name on the back.  I turned to my husband and said, "With all the trouble athletes seem to be getting into I don't think that's someone to look up to.  One should wear a t-shirt with more moral fiber."  And being the writer that I am added, "Like authors."
      My husband looked at me, "Hemingway?"
      "Okay, so not authors.  What group of people have morals?  People from the Bible." 
     So with that being said, here are three t-shirt slogans:
     Moses -- the First Speaker of the House
     Jonah -- Do what you're told the first time
     Daniel -- Learned to get along with those who roar

Anybody want to add?
