Re: Come on In If You're Online And Say Anything: Part III

So I bought a new set of sheets and pillowcases for my bed.

At checkout, the teenage cashier boy was holding the "brick" of them, looking intently at it, when he turned to me and asked "what exactly is this?"

"It's a fitted sheet, top sheet, and two pillowcases." I replied.

"I had no idea they were so expensive." he said.

"You can get less expensive sets," I offered, "but they won't be as smooth."

"So scratchy!" he exclaimed.

"Basically, yeah." I said.

He returned to scanning my items.

"I've got a tip for you that may or may not be relevant to your situation, but it should be good if you're ever buying a present for your mom, or a sister, if you have any." I said.

"Yeah?"

I said "Human females have skin that is, on average, four times thinner than a man's. So if and when you are buying bedding for a bed a woman is going to sleep in, buy the good stuff. They won't tolerate scratchy the same way we can."

"Wow, I had no idea. So these are worth it, huh?" he mused.

"They are to me, and only the best for my sweetie." I beamed.

"Right on." he replied.

And that was that and I was on my way.


Cheers,
Ian
