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.
