To Be 6 Again

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, still 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.

This is funny because it’s accurate.

True wife is of Chinese decent and, if you’ve ever been to a Chinese wedding you’ll know that, during the dinner, the guests and wedding party play little games with the bride and groom.

My wife’s siblings invented this little newlywed game where they asked us a whole bunch of questions and we had to answer them. For each that we wrote down the same answer, we were rewarded and for each one we didn’t match on we had to perform some silly trick (usually with heavy sexual connotations involved).

Most of the questions were pretty standard stuff. “Where was your first kiss?” “What is ‘whats4dessert’s’ favorite meal” etc. We wrote down our answers as the questions were asked and were confident we were going to match on most of them.

Then they asked “Whose fault was your last argument?” I hesitated, held pencil over paper and replied with the only answer that I knew I could…..”It’s ALWAYS my fault”

To this particular question my wife had written “HIS fault”

The judges considered it a match.

Well, at some point during the Wall of Fear she could have just asked her husband why he decided to take her to Six Flags on her birthday.

Miscommunication is a two way street.

Still a funny story. *thumbs up*

And nasty.

All in good fun, I know. (still smiling)

Still horribly mean though.

You're way to fine to be playing tricks like that on us poor unsuspecting, vulnerable men.

Did I sell that enough?

Good one, kel.

Still funny, even though a size 6 would be like tent for you!

Robert A. Heinlein created a character, Lazarus Long, who loved life so much, he lived forever. Long wrote several quotes...and one seems to fit the story you told:


Men...if you are in an argument with your wife/girlfriend/significant other...and you realize that you are right and she is wrong...

...apologize immediately
...shut your damn mouth
...and never bring up the subject again

NG...keeping his head down in his foxhole in the battle between the sexes.

Nightguy - Heinlein was right. If men want a quick and easy primer on women, they could do worse than read "The Notebook of Lazarus Long"

wahine - yes, we do!

freelove - it's so much fun. Other than being natural heaters, it's one of their major positive attributes ... oh, and there's that marvelous little appendage they have ...

As to the comments by men here - don't you know that even if you get it right, we probably won't tell you. We have to keep you trying harder ...

<snort> Funny. D listens, happily. For Christmas he got me gifts that touched every part of my life and personality--every single one. I've never been understood like that before. Still, loved your story!

LMAO! That was great. As to Heinlein, my late father told me, from the time I was tall enough to listen that 'You're wrong and she is right' with regards to relationships is the only possibility. I'll have to check out Notebook of Lazarus Long, though I'm more of a Starship Troopers fan (the book, not that vapid piece of crap passing for a movie).

BigBoobLuver - the Notebook is a compilation done from Heinlein's writings throughout his career. Basically, it's his philosophy. If you like Starship Troopers, you'll love it.

I have always loved his description of the juvenile justice system in Starship Troopers. The analogy about house training a puppy ... so true.

LMFAO! Great story!!! Personally, I would've loved a day at the amusement park for my birthday!!! It's been WAY too long since I've been! And, I absolutey LOVE roller coasters!!!

Anyway, getting back to the point, at least he made an attempt to give her what he thought she wanted. That says alot! Fortunately, my man always pays attention when it comes to my desires, hopes, and dreams. He may not always listen very well when I bitch about work or talk about a conversation I had with a friend, but he always knows just what to do to put a smile on my face. Whether it be gifts, gestures, or something as simple as a an "I love you, baby" and a kiss.
