I’ve just distributed several carrier bags of ‘goodies’ amongst the charity shops in our local town. Now I used my common sense here. I gave all the ‘safe’ things like clothes, crockery, cookware and sensible books to one charity shop.
Then I took all the erotic novels and sex books which I found to another. I rushed in – handed them the carrier bag and fled….. before anyone could stop me to fill in a gift-aid form – or anything else for that matter!
I shan’t go back in there for a while. Not until I am sure they’ve got over the shock!! I just have this vision of these rather elderly ladies (volunteers always seem to be prim elderly ladies don’t they!!) unpacking the bag! Most of the books have rather scantily clad girls on the front – and some are rather more explicit – I think the Joy of Sex makes it fairly clear on the cover what it’s about!!
So there could well be some rather flustered ladies going home tonight…..!!!
