    [SIZE=medium]A man was sitting on the edge of the bed, observing his wife turning [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium]back and forth, looking at herself in the mirror.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium] [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium]Since her birthday was not far off, he asked what she'd like to have [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium]for her Birthday. I'd like to be six again, she replied, stil looking [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium]in the mirror.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium] [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium]On the morning of her Birthday, he arose early made her a nice big bowl [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium]of Lucky Charms, and then took her to Six Flags theme park. What a day[/SIZE][SIZE=medium]! [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium]He put her on every ride in the park; the Death Slide, the Wall of [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium]Fear, the Screaming Monster Roller Coaster... everything there was.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium] [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium]Five hours later they staggered out of the theme park. Her head was [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium]reeling and her stomach felt upside down.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium] [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium]He then took her to a McDonald's where he ordered her a Happy Meal with [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium]extra fries and a chocolate shake.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium]Then it was off to a movie, popcorn, a soda pop, and her favorite [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium]candy, M&M's. What a fabulous adventure ![/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium] [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium]Finally she wobbled home with her husband and collapsed into bed exhausted. [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium] He leaned over his wife with a big smile and lovingly asked, Well [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium]Dear, what was it like being six again ??[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium] [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium]Her eyes slowly opened and her expression suddenly changed.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium]I meant my Dress Size, you dumb ass !![/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium] [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium]The moral of the story: Even when a man is listening, he is going to [/SIZE][SIZE=medium]get it wrong.[/SIZE]

    I have been married 17+ years and have spent enough nights on the couch for doing something similar.

    I saw this today and this thread seems relatively appropriate. As our acclaimed grammar expert, I thought you might get a kick out of it: Link.

    I use that site too. Tried to find a site with all of Al Capp's Li'l Abner comic strips but failed. All were unreadable. Much like the Li'l Abner on Gocomics.com . I really want to reread the Shmoo years.

    Huh. Never considered that. Wonder how many people even know what a Shmoo is?

    If you really don't know, you should look into them. Probably one of the most interesting comic strip characters ever seen. And edible. Here's a link.
