Patronizing the Arts
We were walking through the Gardner Museum yesterday, when I started talking about anal beads. I pointed to a display of rosaries and asked her, my expert on all things Catholic, if the rosary was another sexual secret.
She rolled her eyes, trying to ignore me, but I pressed on.
"That's dangerous. They could fall off and get stuck inside. The beads are so small you might never notice if you're missing one or two."
Dryly, she said:
"It's a concern. That's why we spend so much time counting them."
