    immodest thing to do

    Hello

    A schoolteacher was talking to a man. She told him about school and her pupils (who one day gave her a wireless set as a present when she was in hospital).

    She told him about the little wireless set, and blushing because it seemed rather an immodest thing toí do, repeated the message
    which the children had sent with it.

    Do you think she blushed because it was immodest to accept that gift from pupils or because she told about it to the man and it was immodest?

    I would imagine that repeating the message had seemed immodest to her. I don't know why though. Was the message full of praise?

    I can understand she might have felt a bit awkward reading it then!

    Of course. It was intended for me!
