Six Again

A man was sitting on the edge of the bed, observing his wife turning back and forth, looking at herself in the mirror. Since her birthday was not far off, he asked what she'd like to have for her Birthday.

I'd like to be six again, she replied, still looking in the mirror.

On the morning of her Birthday, he arose early, made her a nice big bowl of Lucky Charms, and then took her to Six Flags theme park. What a day! He put her on every ride in the park; the Death Slide, the Wall of Fear, the Screaming Monster Roller Coaster, everything there was. Five hours later they staggered out of the theme park. Her head was reeling and her stomach felt upside down. He then took her to a McDonald's where he ordered her a Happy Meal with extra fries and a chocolate shake. Then it was off to a movie, popcorn, a soda pop, and her favorite candy, M&M's. What a fabulous adventure!

Finally she wobbled home with her husband and collapsed into bed exhausted. He leaned over his wife with a big smile and lovingly asked, Well Dear, what was it like being six again?

Her eyes slowly opened and her expression suddenly changed. I meant my Dress Size, you dumb ass!

The moral of the story: Even when a man is listening, he is going to get it wrong.

What a bitch. He does all that cool stuff for her, and all she can do is call him a dumbass for a misundrestanding. Betcha he ignores her birthday next year :)

I always hated that joke. At least where I'm concerned, I think he got it EXACTLY right!

Then again, I'm always told I'm not like other girls because I sometimes ask for tools or, more likely, computer parts for my birthday, and if for some reason I ever ask, "Do these jeans make me look fat?" I really honestly want to know the answer.......
