A young man wanted to buy a pair of expensive gloves for his sweetheart’s birthday. He went to an expensive boutique, bought the finest gloves available, and asked the saleswoman to have them delivered along with a note he had written. Unfortunately, the clerk mixed up the order while wrapping the merchandise. Instead of the expensive gloves, the clerk accidentally wrapped a pair of panties and sent them to the young man’s sweetheart along with the following note which he had written.
I have been trying desperately to come up with a special
gift for your birthday. I chose these because I noticed that you
are not in the habit of wearing any when we go out in the evening.
I would have chosen the long ones with buttons, but since your
sister wears the short ones which are so easy to remove, I wanted
to get the same style for you.
You may be concerned that these are a delicate shade, however,
the saleslady showed me a pair that she had been wearing for
three weeks and they were hardly soiled. She said that there are
a couple of important care considerations that I should mention
to you. First, when you take them off, remember to blow in them
before putting them away since they will naturally be a little
damp from wearing. Second, be sure to keep them on while
cleaning them so that they won’t shrink.
The saleslady made such an impression upon me that I had her try
them on for me. She really looked great in them and I can just
imagine how great they are going to look on you. I decided to
mail these so that you would have them in time for your birthday.
I really hesitated because I wanted so much to be there to watch
you put them on for the first time. There is little doubt in my
mind that many other hands will have touched them before I see
you again. I can hardly wait to run my own hands over them or do
as the French do, and gently kiss them. I hope you really like
them and will wear them for me on Friday night.
