Telling My Mother

Me: Hey, ma. I’m in another book. I’m sending you a copy. (pause) Don’t read it.

Mom: Don’t read it? What’s it called?

Me: (pause) Swing! Adventures in Swinging.

Mom: What’s that?

Me: It’s sorta like wife swapping but not really–

Mom: Oh, please, I’ve read stuff like that before. Guess what! I found a 45 of Don’t Stop T’il You Get Enough in the basement.
