Husband was sitting on the edge of the bed, watching his wife, who was looking at herself in the mirror. Since her birthday was not far off, he asked, “What do you want for your birthday?”
“I’d like to be 8 again”, she replied, still looking in the mirror.
On the morning of her birthday, husband arose early, made her a nice big bowl of Coco Pops, then took her to the theme park and put her on every ride. 5 hours later they staggered out of the theme park. Wife’s head was reeling and her stomach felt upside down. Husband then took her to a McDonald’s and 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 favourite candy, M&M’s.
Finally she wobbled home and collapsed into bed exhausted.
Husband leaned over his wife, with a big smile lovingly asked, “Well Dear, what was it like being 8 again?”
Her eyes slowly opened and her expression suddenly changed.
“I meant my dress size, you idiot!”
