Thursday Special ~ Be careful what you ask for…

Be careful what you ask for…

A man was sitting on the edge of the bed, observing his wife, 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 favourite 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 idiot!’

The moral of the story:

Even when a man is listening, he’s going get it wrong.

    Maybe he understood exactly what she meant, but didn’t want to acknowledge it because it would imply she was fat, so he tactfully misinterpreted it. We men are devious too.

    The 5 min management course is brilliant.

    Never mind being SIX…

    The husband was lucky she wasn’t SICK after all of that!

    Well done to ChrisB – I enjoyed the management course ๐Ÿ™‚

    Nick ~ Being devious does not mean you (men) get it right ๐Ÿ˜‰

    ChrisD ~ I would HATE that kind of day out!

    Steph ~ ChrisB always has a good story for Wednesdays.

    Um! She said six not size six. I thought that females were supposed to be more language aware ๐Ÿ˜‰ somethng about spending more time with their mums in early childhood.

    That’s one set of stories I’ll have to delete from my humour file. Good ones though!
