If your spouse does something and it could mean two different things, and one of them will offend you, assume they meant the other thing. This is a cute story, but let's give our men a break, this man should have been praised for his effort, not vilified for being a man.


The husband asked his wife what she'd like for her birthday. "I'd love to be six again," she replied.

On the morning of her birthday, he woke up early, got up, made her a nice big bowl of Lucky Charms and then took her off to Disneyland.

What a day! They went on every ride in the park. The Matterhorn, Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, and the Haunted Mansion. Five hours later she staggered out of the theme park. Her head was reeling and her stomach felt upside down. They drove to a
McDonald's where her loving husband ordered her a Happy Meal with extra fries and a refreshing chocolate shake.

Then it was off to a movie to see the latest blockbuster, a hot-dog, 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 precious 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. "Is that what this crazy day was all about? You idiot, I meant my dress size!"

Moral 1: Even when a man is listening, he's still gonna get it wrong.


And he tried so hard to make the perfect day for a six year old.
I guess we need to give them credit for listening though.
