The Far Reach of Fifty Shades
Whilst a work colleague waited in line at our local Post Office, a lady in front of him went up to the counter.
“How much would it cost to send a parcel to Zimbabwe?” asked the lady.
“It would depend on the size and weight of the parcel,” answered the clerk. “What is it you want to send?”
“Okay, are they paperback or hardbacks?” she then asked .
“I have them with me,” said the lady.
“Okay! If you set them on the scales, I should be able to give you an idea of how much it would cost.”
The lady proceeded to set her bundle of five books on the scales. Whilst three of the book spines were facing the clerk, two of them were facing the people in the cue. Much to my colleagues surprise, the two books were Fifty Shades of Grey and Fifty Shades Darker.
How wonderfully refreshing it is to know, that ladies all over the world enjoy a good erotic romance.
