The Hidden Side of the 18th Century

See, yesterday, while some crazy person left me in charge of the library, a woman came up to return a book called Lord John and the Private Matter. I kid you not. Now, we have nice little slots near the door for the depositing of returned books, so I was a little confused. The woman leans over the counter and says, very conspiratorially, "I think you should know that this book has gay stuff in it."

...The way I saw it, I had two options.

Option A: "You don't say! Ma'am, I am so sorry. We'll have our Library Gestapo place a pink triangle on the cover immediately."

Option B: "Um...okay."

I was very seriously afraid that the sarcasm of Option A would escape her, and I hated the meek acceptance of Option B, so I just said, "Oh, thanks!" and immediately checked it out to myself.


Context enjoys gay soldiers.
