The Gift

A young man wanted to purchase a gift for his new sweetheart for
her birthday, but they had not been dating very long. After
careful consideration, he decided a pair of gloves would strike
the right note: romantic but not too personal. Accompanied by his
sweetheart's younger sister, he went to Nordstrom's and bought a
pair of white gloves. The sister purchased a pair of panties for

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 noticed that you are not in the habit of
wearing any when we go out in the evening. If it had not been for
your sister, I would have chosen the long ones with the buttons
but she wears short ones that are easier to remove. These are a
delicate shade, but the lady I bought them from showed me the
pair she had been wearing and they were hardly faded. I had
her try yours on for me and she looked really smart. I wish I
was there to put them on for you the first time. I hope you will
wear them for me on Friday night." All my love.
