See honey, it’s not a big deal!

April 2, 2007

The Odd Blog Quote of the Month has been chosen, but first, a little background.

On Saturday, sex workers in Amsterdam offered a free look at the city’s famed red-light district. Wide-eyed gawkers got to pose for pictures and snoop behind the scenes. Organizers planned the event to help combat what they considered “bad publicity.”

If they learn what we do here they will realize it is not a big deal if their husbands or boyfriends want to come here.

If that’s true, then those Dutch wives must be very, very unusual. Readers should feel free to agree or disagree via Post a Comment. Alexandra Hudson reports:

“Oh, well, my goodness, do I feel silly. You see–well, oh geez–I thought they do horrible things with you, like go shopping, or go to the beach, or take the kids to the zoo. You know, things we’re supposed to do together. Now that I understand–I mean I just, boy do I feel silly. You shouldn’t believe everything you hear, I guess! You go on, honey. You have fun!”
