Did I tell you my 50 Shades of Grey story?
I had not heard of 50 Shades of Grey until an old woman in my building started explaining it to me. I was up on the roof deck, minding my own business, and I guess she wanted me to know she was hip, so she randomly launched into a rant about it. As you can imagine, this was not comfortable for me, or for the dust mites on my crawling skin. I figured she was senile and just flashing back to how they had sex during the Depression. When I looked it up and saw that it was a real book AND a bestselling one at that, I wondered if I might be senile. Ignorance is (was) bliss.
