A man asked his wife, “If you could have anything in the world for one day, what would you want?”
“I’d love to be six again,” she replied.
On the morning of her birthday, he got her up bright and early and off they went to a local theme park. What a day! He put her on every ride in the park: the Death Slide, the Screaming Loop, the Wall of Fear, everything there was! Wow! Five hours later she staggered out of the theme park, her head reeling and her stomach upside down.
Off to McDonald’s they went, where her husband ordered her a Big Mac along with extra fries and a refreshing chocolate shake. Then it was off to a movie: the latest Hollywood blockbuster, hot dogs, popcorn, Coke and M&M’s.
What a fabulous adventure! Finally she wobbled home with her husband and collapsed into bed. He leaned over and lovingly asked, “Well dear, what was it like being six again?”
One eye opened. “You idiot, I meant my dress size.”
The moral of this story: If a woman speaks, and a man is actually listening, he will still get it wrong.
