Sometimes, its good just to laugh. This is a brief excerpt from Dave Harvey’s excellent book, “When Sinners Say I Do”.
“You may know the story. A man asked his wife what she’d like for her birthday. She replied wistfully, ” I would really love to be ten again”. On the morning of her birthday , he woke her up early with a bowl of her favorite cereal from when she was a kid. He then whisked her away to a popular theme park for an indescribable day. Cotton candy, hot dogs, roller coaster, the Death Slide–everything there was. She staggered from the theme park, head pounding and stomach nauseous. Straight away , he drove her to McDonald’s for a Happy Meal with extra fries and a refreshing chocolate shake. Next it was off to the cinema to see the latest blockbuster movie, and of course, M&M’s, popcorn, the works. At the end of the day, his wife wobbled home and collapsed exhausted onto the bed. As he stood in the doorway with a big dopey grin, he said, “Well, darling, what was it like to be ten again? The only words mumbled by his wife?
“I meant my dress size.”
