To borrow a phrase from the inimitable Mr. Darcy, you must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and adore these Jane Austen bandages. The adorable tin is filled with 15 bandages printed with either a lovely image of Ms. Austen or one of her most famous quotes. Covering up a scraped elbow has never been so romantic!

Dear loving friend or family member who bought me kitchen towels for my bridal shower,
Thank you so much for your wonderful gift. I know I already sent you a note for the present, but I felt the need to write again. Andy and I were just overwhelmed with the many generous and wonderful gifts we received, so it’s been six months since the shower and we have just gotten around to unpacking some of the things we put in storage. What a pleasant surprise to discover these towels, which you so cleverly crafted into a bow.
Once I untied them, I realized how cute the design is. Did you have a chance to actually take a look at them? I know Prop 8 wasn’t even in the collective consciousness when you bought them, so I find the inscription, HOME SWEET HOMO, to be a little puzzling. Is there something about Andy I should know? Did you find out about my little drunken incident in college? Or did you just not look closely enough when you picked these up in the sale bin at the dollar store? Either way, I think they’re fabulous. And I hope you don’t mind if I regift them to some of my favorite gays this Christmas. Somehow, I just think they’ll appreciate them a little more than I will.
All my love,
