A young man wanted to purchase a gift for a new sweetheart’s birthday, and after careful consideration he decided that a pair of gloves would strike the right note; romantic, but not too personal. Accompanied by his sweetheart’s younger sister, he went shopping and bought a pair of white gloves. The sister bought a pair of panties for herself.
During the wrapping, the clerk mixed up the items and the sister got the gloves and the sweetheart got the panties. Without checking the contents, the young man sealed the package and sent it to his sweetheart with the following note:
“I chose these because I notice you are not in the habit of wearing any when we go out in the evening. If it wasn’t for your sister, I would have chosen the longer ones with buttons, but she said the short ones are easier to remove.
These are a delicate shade, but the lady I bought them from showed me the pair she had been wearing for the past three weeks and they were hardly soiled. I had her try yours on for me and she looked really nice in them.
I wish I were there to put them on for you the first time, as no doubt other hands will come in contact with them before I see you again.
When you take them off, remember to blow in them before putting them away, as naturally they will be a little damp from wearing.
Just think of how many times I will kiss them in the coming year. I hope you will wear them on our date this Friday. I would love to see you in them. All my love.”
