Say No More

Posted in Uncategorized at 2:50 pm by Ian

I was recently tasked with imparting, to a third party, the fact that a particular woman was not a prostitute.

Not a woman I know personally. A woman who had been mentioned in a context that seemed to imply that she was.

“No, no. He hired her.”
knowing smile “Uh huh.”
“Not like that. She’s, like, an independent contractor.”
agreement with what it is assumed I am saying “Sure did.”
“No. I mean, like, they had a business relationship.”
smirk “Right.”
“I give up. There is no way to say this that isn’t a euphemism for ‘whore’.”
