Maybe she’ll let you watch…
He sold his watch to buy her a comb. She is returning the favor by showing him a good time. He is getting the better deal.
Gift of the Magi by O. Henry.
She’s getting all wound up at an alarming rate.

If it’s the kind of gift that keeps on giving, sure.
$1.49 for a comb. It’s a double win for Henry; she has great hair.
Henry has a wonderful sense of nostalgia. In my lifetime I’ve never seen a woman wearing a comb.
Hungry now for candy bar….
Quid pro quo, y’know.
well, that certainly could be considered a surprise ending
Societal pressure based on a tale of fiction to give someone a gift at a certain time of year.
The watch needs winding, I think she’s self-winding.
Now that’s my kind of woman.
The heck with flowers. I’m heading to town to buy a comb
SANDY: After Summer Loving, all I have left to remember Danny Zuko by is this grease loaded comb…oh yeah. And his baby. MOM! DANNY JR IS CRYING AGAIN!
Watch or no watch, his time is coming!
Henry will get his money’s worth not worrying about the time.
I asked for twins, she got me a two-pack of combs. Maybe I wasn’t clear on what I meant.
Nice tale by O. Henry, however, hair grows back. Always bugged me about that story. The watch is a little harder to replace.And yes I do know the point of the story isn’t that direction, but still….
Will she comb his hair up and down!
if she shows him a good time he’ll likely find it swell…
