"Hi, Coast 101.3. Who's this?"
"Good morning, Mandy. One in three Americans admit they have not done this since high school. Do you know the answer?"
"I hope not."
"Because if I'm correct, it's going to be very sad."
"What's your answer?"
"Read a book."
"You are correct! Wow! It's been a while since the first caller has been correct. But, you'll be going to see Colbie Caillat at the Bowl."
"Wow. That's just awful. But yay!"
"I take it you've read a book since high school."
"What's the last book you read?"
"Sold, by Patricia McCormick."
"I thought you'd say Fifty Shades of Gray."
"Don't even get me started on that one."
"What's wrong with it? It seems wildly popular."
"I couldn't get past the free preview. The writing is awful."
"I don't think people read it for the writing."
"Oh good Lord. There are so many fantastic books in that genre with good writing. Like Bianca Noire! You don't have to settle for mediocre story lines."
"I'm sure there is."
"I told you not to get me started."
"That you did. Well, hold on the line and we'll get your information."
And that's how I ended up talking about erotica on the radio. I think I scared the DJ.
