Mix up at Harrods.

  1. Jul 1, 2003 #1
    A young man called Paul wanted to purchase a gift for his new
    sweetheart's Christmas present and as they had not been dating for very long, after careful consideration, he decided that a pair of gloves
    would strike the right note, not too romantic and not too personal. Accompanied by his sweetheart's sister he went to Harrods and bought a
    dainty pair of white gloves.
    The sister purchased a pair of panties for herself at the same time.
    During the wrapping the shop assistant mixed up the two 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:

    "Dear Maria, 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 that she had been wearing for the past three weeks and they were hardly soiled at all. I had her try yours on for me and she looked really smart even though they were a little tight on her. She also told me that her pair helps to keep her ring clean and shiny, in fact she had not needed to wash it since she had begun wearing them. I wish I were there to put them on for you for the first time, as no doubt many other hands will touch them before I have a chance to see you again. When you take them off remember to blow into them before putting them away as they will naturally be a little damp from wearing. Just think how many times my lips will kiss them during the coming year. I hope that you will wear them for me on Friday night."

    All my love Paul

    P.S. The latest style is to wear them folded down with a little fur

    Well, that didn't sound just right, but if you're asking whether we actually know each other, then no.
