A very sheepish 7 year old boy came to me and confided, “Mom, there’s an inappropriate picture of a lady in my new dog book.” “The dog book that your Aunt Cathy gave you?” He uncharacteristically lowered his voice, “Yes. And by the way, the lady is not wearing any booby caps.”
Through long thick eyelashes, he set his gaze on me, waiting for a mother’s reaction. “Let’s go tell your father.” Who immediately snapped a picture of the “before” prior to sending it to his sister, with the following note:
This photo is in the back of the dog book you gave my son.
He thanks you.
And just so you know, the photo was NOT pixelated in the book.
Fiddledaddy then handily made use of a permanent marker and installed some modest swimwear on the model.
And lest you think that we allow inappropriate reading material to fall into the hands of our innocent children, this is the innocuous cover of the book in question:
I’m guessing that Jensen’s dog obsession has just taken on a whole new layer.
