A Matter of Emphasis
As we drive, I notice a billboard advertising a video store in an upcoming village, with, among other attractions, a "Huge Adult Department". Emma, who is eleven, must have been idly reading it as well, for her voice comes over my shoulder. "What's that mean, mummy, 'huge adult department'?" "It means they have lots of pornography." "Oh, yuck! I thought it was clothes." "Clothes for adults, you mean?" "Yes. Really big adults."
