The pen is mightier than the sword

womanreadingEn route to Jozi, from Cape Town – the flight is delayed for an hour.

A brief foray into Exclusive Books, from whence I emerge carrying a copy of Paige Nick’s “Pens Behaving Badly“.

With the flight being somewhat AWOL, the book gets opened and I start reading. It becomes evident – after a while – that I am being stared at by passersby. This is confirmed by the 16-year-old daughterperson.

Eventually, an American woman comes past me and confirms my suspicions…the passersby are reading the cover as “Penis Behaving Badly”. She laughs and says, “That would not be surprising!”

Giggles from daughterperson and me.
