A man was sick and tired

A man was sick and tired of going to work every day while his wife stayed at home; he wanted his wife to see what he goes through.

So he prayed: “Dear Lord, I go to work all day and put in eight hours while my wife stays at home. I want her to know what I go through, so please switch her body with mine for a day, as I take hers.” So God, in His own infinite wisdom, granted the man’s wish.

The next morning, sure enough, the man awoke as a woman.

He cooked breakfast, awakened the kids, set out their school clothes, fed them, packed their lunch, took them to school, came back home, picked up the dry cleaning, took it to the cleaners, went grocery shopping, got home and put away the groceries, cleaned the cat’s litter box, and bathed the dog.

By then, it was already 1:00 pm.

He quickly went to make the bed, do the laundry, sweep and mop the floor, ran to school to pick up the kids, got into an argument with one of them, set out milk and cookies, and got the kids organized to do their homework.

He then set up the ironing board and watched TV while he did the ironing. At 4:30 pm, he began peeling potatoes and washed the vegetables for salad, breaded the pork chop, and snapped fresh beans for supper.

After supper, he cleaned the kitchen, ran the dishwasher, folded laundry, bathed the kids, and put them to bed. Now he was exhausted, and though his daily chores weren’t over, he went to bed and was expected to make love, which he managed to get through without complaints.

Early in the morning, he woke up and quickly knelt down by the bed and said: “Lord, I do not know what I was thinking, I was wrong to envy my wife being able to stay home all day. Please let’s trade again.”

God answered: “Man, I’d love to answer your prayers, but the time you made love last night, you got pregnant, so you have to wait for nine months to change.”
