A man was sitting on the edge of the bed, watching his wife, who was looking at herself in the mirror.
Since her birthday was not far off, he asked what she’d like as a gift.
“I’d like to be eight again,” she replied, still looking in the mirror.
On the morning of her birthday, he rose early, made her a nice big bowl of Coco Pops, and then took her to Adventure World theme park.
What a day! He put her on every ride in the park; the Death Slide, the Wall of Fear, the Screaming 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 theatre for the latest superhero saga – with popcorn, a soda pop, and her favourite candy, M&Ms.
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 eight 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 is gonna get it wrong.
