Birthday Gift...and Spiderman

A nice young man wanted to purchase a birthday gift for his new sweetheart. As they had not been dating very long, after some careful consideration, he decided that a pair of elegant winter gloves would strike just the right note - romantic, but not too personal.

Accompanied by his sweetheart's younger sister, he went to a fine department store and chose a pair of lovely white fur-lined gloves. The sister did her own shopping, buying a pair of panties for herself.

While the clerk was wrapping the items, she got the boxes mixed up, and gave the gloves to the sister and gift-wrapped the panties for the young man.

The young man sealed the package without noticing and sent it to his sweetheart, who opened it on her birthday to find his enclosed 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 demonstrated the short ones she wears 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 for the past three weeks and they were hardly soiled. I had her try yours on for me and she looked very sharp.

I wish I was there to put them on for you the first time, as no doubt other hands will come in contact with them before I have a chance to see you again. When you take them off, remember to blow in them before putting them away, as they will naturally be a little damp from wearing.

Just think how many times I will kiss them during the coming year. I hope you will wear them for me on Friday night.

All my love.

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

    LOL, Bonnie, where do you get all these tall stories? So funny. Thanks for the chuckle.
    Happy Easter.

    Wonder if anyone has done a history of jokes?
    A version of this one was around in hand-written form when my mother was a young woman and when gloves were a standard present. - which goes to show that a really funny joke like this lives forever.
    Seems to me though, there was a line about "replacing the pair he tore last night."
    Thank you, Bonnie!
