There was a pleasant surprise in store for one man on Monday morning, when he woke from his slumbers to find that he could see through women's clothing.
The x-rated X-ray treat presented itself to Malcolm Thompson when he first opened his eyes at 6:30 a.m., and saw his wife walking around the bedroom without her nightdress.
"It was odd,", he said, but I just got ready for work in my 'usual five minutes', and left the house."
As he drove the short distance to the factory, he noticed a woman walking a dog. In the pre-dawn half-light, the woman appeared to be naked, so he rubbed his eyes and drove on, imagining that he still hadn't fully woken up yet, and was daydreaming.
As he entered his workplace, however, his imaginings evaporated, as he saw several of his colleagues - all female - parading about the factory floor minus their overalls. They were also minus their underwear. He stared in disbelief!
Unable to comprehend the situation, or why none of his male colleagues seemed to be able to see what he could see, and barely knowing how to avert his gaze from the fullsome jugs of Rhonda on the next machine, he put his head down and got on with his work, stealing only the occasional furtive glance.
Then, to explore his greatest fantasy, he decided to go and see his boss, Penelope Rutter, in her office. He invented 'a good reason to be there', and set off. Once at the manager's door, he tapped gently, and received a brusque "Enter!" He went in.
What he saw, made him erect. The sultry Penelope was kneeling on a leopardskin couch in a provocative pose, dressed in nothing but her Birthday Suit and a pair of stilletos. Arms above her head, flailing, she looked at Malcolm invitingly in a long, longing stare.
"It was then that my wife shouted 'Happy Birthday!' at me, and told me to get up and get ready for work, because I was going to be late," said Malcolm.
