This was not the sort of comment I was expecting from my daughter, had “50 Shades” reared its head again? (see here for *that* post).
“I’m not sure,” chipped in my son “but they only get bound-up to show they’re in love”.
“OK,” I said in that faux-unconcerned voice that mums use when they’re actually dreading the answer “what are we talking about?”
“Binding” he replied “we’ve just got our jobs for the wedding and we’re binding their hands together, what does that mean?”
“And if it’s a job how much will we get paid?” added my mercenary daughter.
Everything now fell into place. Their uncle had just announced their roles in his forthcoming nuptials and they were tying together the happy couple’s hands at the end of the ceremony, I could relax for now, E. L. James was not on the reading list after all…
