Fifty shades of embarrassed

We wandered down the hall... actually we opened the door and there on Duncan the rocking horse's ear was a Mother's Day bag, looking terribly jaunty as it swung in the breeze. His mother knows him well and he is notorious for presenting all gifts in the original wrapping. According to Him it is sensible in case it has to be returned... well that's his excuse. So standing in the breezeway we switched out the bags before proceeding down the hall to give His mother her gifts... one from him and one from his father. An event He watched avidly as he had no idea what she was getting either... one small official gift shopper providing yet another household service that will probably never make it to the porn site fantasies.

As she is rustling amongst the tissues He asks casually, how's the book going?
She flushed slightly, fumbling the wrapping... um yes, I don't think I will be lending it to mother when I've finished though.
Yes probably a bit racy, one commented sotto voce.
Oh where are you up to, He enquired brightly
Well she's just lost her virginity. I've passed all the rope stuff...
And she's right... handcuffs are yet to come... a small fact one keep quiet about, choosing instead to take a shot at him. She's made it further than chapter seven one said.
Yes, past that...
She's made it further than you did one quipped, still smiling sweetly at Him.
I couldn't read it He replied, before entering into a diatribe about why the book was unreadable...
 I don't think I will be lending it to your sister either, she finished.

It seems she is a little embarrassed to be reading "Fifty Shades of Grey"... and doesn't want her daughter to be scandalised by the thought of her reading such a thing. Though why His sister, who seems to subsist on a steady diet of Danielle Steel novels, would be is a bit beyond one. Honestly one would have thought reading those publically would burn any capacity for shame right out of you, but...

It seems though that being embarrassed by your choice of reading material is a common thing on Mother's Day...
Maybe what they really need is a decent book
Happy Mother's Day  J

Oh for a decent book to disappear in...

Lol, the library won't give me a card (bastards), so I have been borrowing books from my mom when she's done reading them...And I must say, she has no such qualms.
