A man was sick and tired of going to work every day while his wife stayed home. He wanted her to see what he went through so he prayed: "Dear Lord: I go to work every day and put in 8 hours while my wife merely stays at home. I want her to know what I go through, so please allow her body to switch with mine for a day Amen." God, in his infinite wisdom, granted the man's wish.
The next morning, sure enough, the man awoke as a woman. -
He arose, cooked breakfast for his mate,
Awakened the kids,
Set out their school clothes,
Fed them breakfast,
Packed their lunches,
Drove them to school,
Came home and
Picked up the dry cleaning,
Took it to the cleaners and
Stopped at the bank to make a deposit,
Went grocery shopping,
Then drove home to put away the groceries,
Paid the bills and
Balanced the check book.
He cleaned the cat's litter box and bathed the dog.
Then it was already 1P.M. And he hurried to make the beds,
Do the laundry,
Mop the kitchen floor.
Ran to the school to pick up the kids and
Got into an argument with them on the way home.
Set out milk and cookies and
Got the kids organized to do their homework,
Then set up the ironing board and
Watched TV while he did the ironing.
A t 4:30 he began peeling potatoes and
Washing vegetables for salad,
Breaded the pork chops and
Snapped fresh beans for supper.
After supper, he cleaned the kitchen,
Ran the dishwasher,
Bathed the kids, and put t hem to bed.
At 9 P.M. He was exhausted and, though his daily chores weren't
finished, he went to bed where he was expected to make love, which he managed to get through without complaint.
The next morning, he awoke and immediately knelt by the bed and
said: -"Lord, I don't know what I was thinking. I was so wrong to envy
my wife's being able to stay home all day. Please, oh! Oh! Please, let
us trade back."
The Lord, in his infinite wisdom, replied:
"My son, I feel you have learned your lesson and I will be happy
to change things back to the way they were. You'll just have to wait
nine months though. You got pregnant last night."
