A NOTE FROM HOME
A saleswoman in a shop in a convention city often waited on businessmen who wanted to take gifts home to their wives. During one convention a man came into the store and silently handed her a slip of paper with the following note: Inasmuch as I am sick of returning black lace nightgowns, off-the-shoulder blouses, and similar articles after every convention, and inasmuch as the bearer of this note seems to think that I am exactly the size of whatever saleswoman happens to be waiting on him at the moment, I am enclosing the following statistics and information: Height: 5 ft. 3 in. Weight: 135 pounds. Dress size: 13. Shoe size: 7. I do not like: the color purple, polka dots, sheer blouses, and open-toed shoes. Please do not sell him the most expensive article in the store, since we have to eat next week too. Thank you. Sincerely, The Wife of the Bearer
