This last Christmas I received the usual candy and mugs but one present took my breath away - in a very heart-stopping way. It was a beautifully wrapped gift, as I opened it I started to chuckle nervously. I pulled out a silky, lavender lingerie bag! It was colorfully stitched with an outline of a bra and panties on the outside.I thought about shoving it back in the gift bag and tossing it out immediately. I did not want to know what was in that bag.
My husband insisted that I should at least open it. (I think he was looking forward to my reaction.) Very slowly I opened the bag and peeked inside. Whatever it was, it had white polka dots. I reached in and pulled out the silky item. As I let it unfurl, I realized it was a scarf! [HUGE sigh of relief]
Talk about a heart attack. How was I going to write a thank you note for what I thought was in that silky bag? Let the awkwardness ensue...
Thank you so much for the undergarments you bought me for Christmas! You know just what I needed. It is my favorite color. I will think of you each time I wear it. I hope you enjoyed your holidays with your family!
My husband and I talked about how I might need to start showing this commercial in class before any major holidays.
I can't wait for Valentine's Day!
