Given at wedding reception by the M.C.

I have a little story, I thought I might relate to you, You see, Garry wanted to purchase a gift for his new sweetheart Diane's birthday, 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, romantic, but not too personal.

Accompanied by Liz, a friend of Diane's, he went to Macy's and bought a pair of white gloves, whilst Liz bought some new underwear for herself. During the wrapping, the clerk mixed up the items and Liz got the gloves and Garry got the underwear. Without, checking the contents, Garry sealed the package and sent it to Diane with the following note,

Diane honey, 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 Liz, I would have chosen the long ones with buttons, but she wears short ones that are easier to remove. These are a delicate shade, but, the clerk 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 they looked really smart.

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 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 I will kiss them during the coming year.
I hope you will wear them for me on Friday night.

All my love. Garry

PS " The latest fad, is to wear them folded down with a little fur showing."
