The Working Mans’ Wish

29 May

A man was sick and tired of going to work every day while his wife stayed home all day.  He wanted her to see what he was going through so he got down on his knees and prayed: Dear Lord, I go to work every day and put in 8 long 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 1 day. Amen.

God, in His infinite wisdom, granted the mans wish.  The next morning 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 the groceries away, paid the bills and balanced the checkbook, clean the cats’ litter box and bathed the dog.  Then,  it was already 1pm so he hurried home to make the beds, do the laundry, vacuum, dust and sweep and mop the kitchen floor, ran to the school to pick up the kids and got into an argument with one of them, set out the 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.  At 4:30 he began peeling potatoes and washing vegetables for the salad, breaded the pork chops and snapped fresh beans for dinner.

After dinner,  he cleaned the kitchen, ran the dishwasher, folded the laundry, bathed the kids and put them to bed,  By then it was 9pm; he was exhausted and even 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 got down on his knees and prayed: Dear 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 PLEASE let me go back to being the man. The Lord in His infinite wisdom replied: My son, I feel you have learned your lesson and will be happy to change things back the way they were.  You’ll just have to wait 9 months though, you got pregnant last night.
