Saucy message in bottle went astray


THE stories about amorous milkmen have been so enjoyable. Here’s a tale of my own. I was a young bride married to a policeman who sometimes did the night shift. It was his habit when he arrived back in the morning to leave a note out for the milkman. One night I left my new husband a note for when he arrived home, which read: ‘Hurry upstairs for a cuddle.’ Unfortunat­ely, seeing the scrap of paper but not what I’d written, he dutifully wrote on the back ‘Two pints semi-skimmed please’ and put it out with the empty bottles. I was unable to face the milkman for a very long time! Gwen Whittle, Liverpool.
