I got a package yesterday in a plain brown wrapper:
Okay, so yes, it’s totally normal for packages to be delivered in plain brown wrappers. But in this case it felt appropriate for a different reason:
Yup. I saw this at the university library last semester, and laughed my ass off leafing through it, but I couldn’t bring myself to be seen carrying a book of pornographic Roman poetry to the library counter to check it out.
But thanks to the anonymity of the Internet, I was able to buy a copy without anyone seeing me with it.
(Of course, then I had to go and do something stupid like announcing it to the world this way, but none of you know who I am, so that’s okay.)
I’m hoping that at some point I’ll find an actual academic excuse for having bought a book like this….though I doubt it’ll come up in my thesis. (Priapus usually threatens to bugger intruders, not Achilles…)
Even if I don’t come up with a good excuse, it should be a fun read.
