Vinnie had fallen in love with Maggie. Under the influence of his infatuation, he promised her diamonds, furs, and beautiful dresses.
One day they took a stroll down 5th Avenue. As they walked past a jewelry store, Maggie whispered, “You promised me diamonds.”
Vinnie picked up a brick laying nearby and threw it through the store window. He reached in and grabbed a diamond necklace, which he then put around Maggie’s neck.
As they strolled on, they came upon a fur shop. Maggie cooed, “You promised me furs too.”
Vinnie picked up another brick, threw it through the window, pulled out a mink, and gave it to Maggie.
As they continued their stroll, they came upon a fashion store with beautiful dresses. Maggie sighed, “I seem to recall you promised me beautiful dresses.”
“What?!” Vinnie protested. “Do you think I’m made out of bricks?”
