Instead of talking about the book, The Tattoo Artist, a reader regaled us with the story of how she climbed out of her car in an icy parking lot, fell, slipped under the SUV, and exclaimed, “my ass crack is purple.”
As supportive book club members, we suggested, “file for workers’ compensation.”
Ugh. That won’t work. She works at a ski resort. One should expect ice in the parking lot.
“Tell everyone you forgot your safe word,” chimed in the happily married reader.
