A young man wished to purchase a Christmas present for his sweetheart
and after consideration he decided on a pair of gloves. Accompanied by
his sister, he went to a ready-wear shop and bought a pair of white
gloves, while his sister bought a pair of panties. The packages were
mixed up in delivery; his sister got the gloves and his sweetheart got
the panties. Without examining the contents, he sealed the package and
sent it to her with a note attached...
Dear Darling, This is a little gift to show you I have not forgotten
Christmas. I chose these because I noticed you are not in the habit of
wearing any when you go out in the evening. If it had not been for my
sister, I would have chosen the long ones with buttons, but she said
the short ones are more in fashion and would be easier to remove.
These are a delicate shade but the lady I bought them from showed me a
pair she had been wearing for three weeks and they were hardly soiled.
I had the sales girl try them on and she really looked smart. Now I
wish I could put them on you for the first time. No doubt other men's
hands will come in contact with them before I have a chance to see
them again. When you take them off, be sure to blow in them before
putting them away, as they will naturally be a little damp from
wearing. Be sure to keep them on while cleaning them, or they might
shrink. I hope you will like them and wear them Friday night.
PS. Just think how many times I will kiss the back of them during the
coming months. The latest style is to wear them unbuttoned and hangingdown.
