My friend Louis edits sex books. I’m sure she can fill an entire blog with the ridiculous editorial quandaries that she comes across on a daily basis. For example, is blow job ever hyphenated? But yesterday’s quandary was good enough to talk about over dinner. Wading through a badly written how-to sex book, she found the following line:
“all her legs should be in the air”
Excuse me? Are you sleeping with Shelob, or possibly a mutant? What is going on here? Poor Louis is considering buying anatomically correct dolls to figure out what her author is trying to say.
What’s your most ridiculous sentence this week?
