Lingerie

Who usually gives you lingerie as a present?

My list of lingerie gift-givers goes something like this:
- Me
- My friends
- Boyfriends
- Parents
...and now:
- Cleaning lady

I've been polling friends in the City who have cleaning ladies -- some of them have never got a gift from said ladies. Others have been bequeathed soap or knick-knacks from the Ukraine or Ecuador or wherever. None of them has ever received lingerie. Especially not the white, stringy, sequinned kind.

What about me says: "I don't really know her that well, there's no particular occassion for a present, but she seems the type to enjoy embroidered delicates"?

Plus she had to guess my size.

And it fit.

I'm not sure which of these many details is the most disorienting...

I would say that the cleaning lady seems to be very sweet!!!
A good surprise, though!!!
and my first reaction, Sim, was to think of my cleaning lady back in India. I cant ever imagine she coming up with an idea of gifting me anything apart from a clean house!
