Her Husband Did Everything He Could With His Wife’s Strange Request

If you’re married or have had a long-term girlfriend, you quickly come to understand the complexity of women. They’re intricate beings, and you can’t always judge things superficially.

This truth was brought home to a husband in the following humorous anecdote. He wanted to plan a memorable birthday celebration for his wife, and when she shared her wish, he went to great lengths to make it a reality in every conceivable way.

Initially, everything seemed to be going smoothly, but he soon discovered a fundamental lesson he should have known from the start: women are intricate creatures, and nailing it on the first try isn’t always possible.

A man asked his wife what she’d like for her 40th birthday.

“I’d love to be six again,” she replied.

On the morning of her birthday, he got her up bright and early and off they went to a local theme park.

What a day! He put her on every ride in the park: The Death Slide, the Screaming Loop, the Wall of Fear, everything there was! Wow!

Five hours later she staggered out of the theme park, her head reeling and her stomach upside down.

Right to a McDonald’s they went, where her husband ordered her a Happy Meal along with extra fries and a refreshing chocolate shake.

Then, it was off to a movie – the latest Disney and what a fabulous adventure!

Finally, she wobbled home with her husband and collapsed into bed.

He leaned over and lovingly asked, “Well, dear, what was it like being six again?”

Wearily, she raised her head, and said;

“You idiot, I meant my dress size.”

The moral of this story is:
When a woman speaks and a man is actually listening, he will still get it wrong.
