Pam and I were once talking about a female relative who was in her late teens. Let’s call her Emily. It wasn’t a significant conversation, I was just catching up on news.
Then Pam started talking about how Emily was complaining about needing to cover up rope burns on her wrists and ankles.
I struggled to start breathing again and put my eyes back in my head.
I tried to ask what was going on but it came out as “ack ack ack”.
It turns out that I’d missed the bit where Pam changed the subject from our relative Emily to another Emily who worked with Pam. This Emily had a reputation for being more “adventurous” than most.
