A young Irish man called Paddy wanted to buy a Christmas present for his new girlfriend. They hadn’t been seeing each other for very long and she lived in and he lived in Kerry.
Paddy consulted with his sister and decided, after careful consideration, that a pair of good quality gloves would strike the right note… not too romantic and not too personal.
Off he went with his sister to Marks and Spencer’s and they selected a dainty pair of fur lined quality leather gloves. His sister bought a pair of for herself at the same time.
Marks and Spencer’s had a free gift wrap offer but the assistant mixed up the two items, the sister got the gloves and Paddy unknowingly got the .
Good old Paddy sent off his gift wrapped present in a parcel with the following letter. Dear Maggie I chose these because I’ve noticed that you are not wearing any when we go out in the evenings.
If it had not been for my sister I would have chosen the long ones with buttons, but she wears ones (which are easier to remove).
These are a very delicate shade, but the lady I bought them from showed me the pair she had been wearing for the past three weeks and I hardly noticed any marks.
I had her try yours on for me and she looked really smart in them even though they were a little tight on her. She also said that they rub against her ring which helps keep it clean.
In fact she hasn’t needed to wash it since she began wearing them. I wish I was there to put them on for you 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 a little because they will be naturally a little from wearing. Just imagine how many times my lips will them during the coming year.
I hope you will wear them for me on our next date. All my love, Patrick P.S. My mum tells me that the latest style is to wear them folded down with a little of showing.
