DeLynne's Biblio-Blunder

I joined some of my dear work colleagues for dinner at a Thai restaurant near the beach. After coffee we were drawn outside by people sending off, coincidentally, Thai paper lanterns (not as many as in the photo, though!).

Walking near the water I heard one woman, a happily married mother and teacher say to another work mate, 'I have to give you that dirty pick-up book.'

I was shocked that she would own a dirty pick-up book and even discuss it in front of us. Also, I was a little curious about what it really was. They dissolved into guffaws when I asked. She had actually said, 'That Jodi Picoult book.'

Here's hoping it's only my hearing that is faulty, and I don't have a terminal case of gutter mind!


  1. Have you been gone from Texas so long that you have forgotten a dirty pick-up book would be about your truck that needs to be washed? ;)

  2. Oh, yes, Kathy, I had forgotten! I will be sure to tell them that's what I was thinking. Thanks for the reminder.

  3. LOL!!!
    Please tell me why I was thinking pocketbook?

    just too too funny

  4. ooops... one quick question & sorry for posting this here, but how do you add labels?

    eerrr!!! What ever happened to click & type!?! Again, sorry for the interruption. (I actually clicked on the email icon to send this by email but clicked out when it requested senders email address. Urggh!) Thanks Ladies!

  5. RYCJ, check your emails, I think I sent you an answer.

  6. Too funny-- DeLynne and Kathy! DeLynne that isn't just a biblio-blooper that is a bookish goofy doofus moment if I ever heard one! Glad I'm not the only one around ;o)
