2917 “Mom’s Just Perfect”

It’s funny how children often see their moms. There’s a story of a small boy who went into the lingerie section of a big department store and shyly presented his problem to a woman clerk. “I want to buy my mom a present of a slip,” he said, “but I don’t know what size she wears.” “Is she tall or short, fat or skinny?” asked the clerk. “She’s just perfect,” beamed the small boy. So she wrapped up a size 34 for him. Two days later, mom came to the store herself—and changed it to a size 52. (The Saturday Review in Tan, P. L. (1996, c1979).
