Wednesday’s Piece

A young lady, with a touch of hay fever, took with her to a dinner party two handkerchiefs, one of which she stuck in her right bosom.
At dinner she began rummaging to right and left in her bosom for the fresh handkerchief. Engrossed in her search, she suddenly realised that conversation had ceased and people were watching her, fascinated.
In confusion she murmured, “I know had two when I came.”
