Suddenly Aunt Mabel regretted that she had told her two friends that she was wearing no knickers that day in the park.
There was one thing to prefer to practice playing the violin without wearing any knickers in the privacy of her own home, quite another to go for a picnic without any.
At home young Johnny was the only one who could see her and he didn’t mind at all of course. It became rather embarrassing when her two friends in the park insisted on having a look.
Young Johnny preferred rock as any sane young man of course, but with a view like this, who care what music is being played.
