A Designer Handbag

Abraham drew out a designer handbag from his luggage and placed it on the table in the designing room. Then he took out his camera and started taking pictures of the front, sides and back, two of each. After that he called his designer Basil through his extension, asking him to come over.
“This handbag cost me four thousand Hong Kong dollars. Look at it. Isn’t it a beautiful, splendid design? I want the sewing pattern of this handbag. Do it for me at once,” said Abraham, stroking the goatee on his chin.

She became speechless when she found a receipt for the unbelievable amount of four thousand Hong Kong dollars. She gazed at her husband with gentle, grateful eyes, followed by a sudden, sweet kiss.
“Abraham, my darling, how sweet of you! A watch shows the man and a handbag shows the woman. I have finally got a designer handbag!” With this she dropped on her husband another string of sweet kisses …
