I am almost finished reading Otherwise Engaged a novel by Suzanne Finnamore. It is, to quote the back cover, a " wickedly funny account of an intelligent, rational woman's transformation into the bundle of anxieties that is the bride-to-be". It's not bad. Although I keep wondering if everyone who was sucessful in the late 1980's did cocaine. Anyway...there are a couple of things said in here that got me thinking. At one point the future husband is thinking about fabric and says if there was only one fabric, it should be rayon. I disagree. If there was only one fabric, it should be cotton. Cotton is comfortable and good for everything from underwear and socks to more formal attire. I'd miss fleece for my rattie hammocks and tubes, but cotton would work too! What fabric would you choose?
