A man was sitting on the edge of the bed, observing his wife turning

back and forth, looking at herself in the mirror.

 

Since her birthday was not far off, he asked what she'd like to have

for her Birthday.  I'd like to be six again, she replied, stil looking

in the mirror.

 

On the morning of her Birthday, he arose early made her a nice big bowl

of Lucky Charms, and then took her to Six Flags theme park. What a day!

He put her on every ride in the park; the Death Slide, the Wall of

Fear, the Screaming Monster 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, 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 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.

I meant my Dress Size, you dumb ass !!

 

The moral of the story: Even when a man is listening, he is going to get it wrong.

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

Did he come back with a smart reply indicating that she'll never see 10 again, much less 8 much less  6.....??


"Laxguy" means a guy who loves lacrosse.

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.
