Anectode about 'ME'

At the age of sixteen I started traveling to our family's linen boutiques around the world. I remember helping a customer in New York offering to monogram his new linens. “Why?” he asked, “ I am perfectly aware of who I am when I go to bed”. “Why not?” I found myself replying out of embarrassment, “they are beautifully embroidered”. I remember him saying with a smile on his face ”It’s a deal, after all, I am purchasing your sheets to reward myself”. F.P.
