Just a little habit.

On the cover of the current edition of Vogue magazine there is a beautiful picture of a lovely woman who is definitely not wearing clothes.

I generally boycott magazines like this by flipping them over so the back faces forward. I do this so I don't have to look at (or be distracted or tempted by) an indecent picture while I'm waiting in line at the grocery store.

The other day I discovered that the back of the Vogue magazine has an ad with a woman as equally undressed as the one on the front.

Thwarted.

But not deterred. As Lost Boy and I were looking for a line at the grocery store, I placed a copy of a cooking magazine in front of the indecent Vogue magazines I passed. I'm sure having to straighten out the magazine racks after I've walked by will be a hassle for the store employees, but if Vogue (or any other magazine that puts indecent pictures on its cover) sells less copies of their magazine in the meantime that's just fine with me. I should probably write them a letter so they can be more proactive in not offending me in the future.

Lost Boy and I were waiting in line a little later when a pretty girl with an indecent neckline walked by us. If I thought it was indecent, it was worse for Lost Boy who is rather tall. A moment after the girl passed Lost Boy asked, "Are you going to put a magazine in front of her too?"
