Reading Fifty Shades Of Grey At Inflatable World
When my friend invited me to tag along to a place called Inflatable World, my first thought was of us walking through a warehouse full of blowup dolls with giant red lips. I laughed with relief when she told me it was an outdoor bouncy house playground for kids, because as much as I love hanging out with my friend, shopping for sex toys is something I just can’t do as a group activity.
Not too long after we arrived I looked over and noticed a woman comfortably stretched out in a lounge chair reading a book. Her shoes were kicked off to the side and she was sensually rubbing her feet against each other while she chewed on her bottom lip.
Jen: Yeah? And?
Me: You don’t know about Fifty Shades of Grey?
Me: OMG! Okay, it’s basically erotic porn for women. Like a romance novel on condoms. It’s a best seller, and is supposedly doing all kinds of good stuff for relationships that need help in, um, that area.
Jen: So it gets you horny!
Me: Yes! And that woman over there is getting horny in Inflatable World!
It was an odd place to be enjoying oneself, with the hundreds of kids and parents running around (my two kids alone are enough to knock me out of the mood), but you’ve got to hand it to the woman for her confidence.
Me: You know how people tell PDA offenders to get a room? I’m going to yell, “Get a Kindle!” Just for fun!
So I didn’t. I guess it’s good to have mature friends with you when the mood to be 15 strikes.
I don’t know if I’d ever see the movie (Okay, who am I kidding, I’m TOTALLY going to see the movie. And apparently I’m a closet prude because I can’t imagine going in anything less than a full body cape that would completely hide my identity.), but it’s fun to weigh in on the whole Fifty Shades of Grey casting craze that’s taken over the web.
I think I have to jump on the Dave Gandy train. Though he’s kind of obscure, I don’t know if he has a train. If I had to go mainstream, then it’s Chris Hemsworth all the way.
Though, really, any of the guys being considered for the role will smoke it.
So with all that said, I guess I need to get a move on it and read the books. I will be downloading them to my PHONE, though. No physical evidence! I don’t need Gabi coming across them in a few years and asking, “What are THESE about, mom?”
