(My mother is a librarian and does a ‘Story Hour’ with young children. This time she is using the story ‘There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly.’ She has written her own story, focusing on common objects in a library. Mom reads out one of the lines.)

Mom: “There was an old lady who swallowed a bag. Oh how she gagged when she swallowed the bag.”

Me: “Mom! Seriously? How she GAGGED when she swallowed a BAG?!”

(There is a long awkward pause as my mother thinks about it.)

Mom: “It’s alright; the kids won’t get it; they’re too young!”
