Here's an item that was voted "Woman's Favorite Email of the Year"...
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
stays at home. I want her to know what I go through, so please allow
me to switch bodies with her for a day. Amen."
God, in His infinite wisdom, granted the man's wish.
The next morning, sure enough, the man awoke with the body of his
wife. 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, stopped at the bank to make a deposit, went
grocery shopping, drove home to put away the groceries, paid the bills
and balanced the checkbook. He next cleaned the cat's litter box and
bathed the dog. Noting that it was already 1 p.m., he hurried to make
the beds, do the laundry, vacuum, dust, sweep and mop the kitchen
floor. He then drove to school, picked up the kids and brought them
home. After giving them some milk and cookies, he got the children
organized and started them on their homework. He then set up the
ironing board and watched some TV while doing the ironing. At 4:30 he
began peeling some potatoes, washing vegetables for a salad, breaded
the pork chops and shucked the corn-on-the-cob for supper.
After dinner, he cleaned the kitchen, ran the dishwasher, folded the
laundry, bathed the kids, and put them to bed.
At 9 p.m., even though he was exhausted and his daily chores weren't
fully completed, he went to bed, where he was expected to make love,
which he managed to get through without complaint.
H awoke the following morning and immediately knelt by the bed to
pray: "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, switch
our bodies back."
The Lord, again 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. But you will have to wait nine months because you
got pregnant last night."
