Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading

Grab your current read. Open to a random page. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!) Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Blue Latitudes: Boldly Going Where Captain Cook Has Gone Before by Tony Horwitz p. 83

"Penises are very important to the culture. When I learned to speak Tahitian I realized all the jokes and half the chat were about sex."
"Just like the dances," Roger said, perking up in the backseat.

My one trip to Tahiti when I was 12 for a long weekend during the rainy season (it was actually a long layover on the trip from Australia back to the U.S.) wasn't half as fun as Tony Horwitz's trip there. My sister and I played Tahitian Monopoly most of the time while it just poured and poured and poured. I had no idea the culture was so sex-focused. I totally missed that. Probably for the best.

I don't think I have ever seen the plural of penis -- it took me several tries to read that teaser!

Audreys, it's actually a woman speaking (the first speaker before Roger), although the book is written by a man if that's what you mean!

Rose City, you made me laugh out loud!
