Luigi walked to work every day. Each way he passed a shoe store. Each time he couldn’t help himself but to stop, look in the window and admire a particular pair of Armani shoes.
He wanted those shoes so much. It was all he could think about.
After about 2 months he saved every last penny to get the $300 he needed to buy the shoes.
Every Friday the Italian community held a dance in the church basement.
Luigi seized the opportunity to wear his new Armani leather shoes for the first time.
He asked Sophia to dance and as they dance he asked her, “Sophia, are you wearing red panties tonight?”
Startled, Sophia replied, “Yes, Luigi , I am wearing red panties tonight, but how do you know?”
Luigi answered, “I see the reflection in my new $300 Armani leather shoes.”
With a smile he moved on.
Next he asked Rosa to dance, and after a while he asked, “Rosa , are you wearing white panties tonight?”
Rosa answered, “Yes, Luigi, I do, but how do you know that?”
He replied, “I see the reflection in my new $300 Armani leather shoes.”
With a coy laugh he moved on.
Now as the evening is almost over and the last song is being played Luigi asked Carmela to dance.
Midway through the dance his face turned red. He asked, ‘Carmela, my sweetheart, Please, please tell me you are wearing no panties tonight. Please, please, tell me this true!”
Carmela smiled coyly and answered, “Yes Luigi , I am not wearing panties tonight.”
Luigi gasped, “Oh thank God! I thought I had a crack in my $300 Armani leather shoes!”
