They need to develop some sort of depression-sensing door control tool that will prevent depressed people from entering places like yarn stores and ice cream shops.
Then again, that would make the depressed people MORE depressed, probably. But it would save them some money!
I had a fairly successful yarn-store run this morning, all things considered - I only bought $30 worth of yarn that was not what I went in for, and I also got the stuff I DID go in for (and I'm pretty happy with it).
As for the reason for the depression, that's a separate post that I'm still mulling over - I'm sure I'll get it written out soon.
