How to ruin an otherwise perfectly pleasant conversation

someone: so, are you still doing that... what's that stuff you do?

me: ...

someone: what is it? Knitting or sewing or whatever?

me: ... art? Are you asking if I'm still an artist?

someone: oh, yeah, that. Are you still doing that stuff?

pro-tip for dealing with artsy/craftsy/creative people - if you're going to be dismissive and act like that person spends the days gluing macaroni to construction paper, just don't bring it up, mmmmkay?
