A Fairy Tale

Be Careful What You Wish For!

A married couple in their early 60s was celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary in a quiet, romantic little restaurant. Suddenly, a tiny, yet beautiful fairy appeared on their table. She said, “For being such an exemplary married couple and for being loving to each other for all this time, I will grant you each a wish.” The wife answered, “Oh, my wish is to travel around the world with my darling husband!” The fairy waved her magic wand and – poof! – two tickets for the Queen Mary II appeared in the wife’s hands. The husband thought for a moment and said: “Well, this is all very romantic, but an opportunity like this will never come again. I’m sorry, my love, but my wish is to have a wife 30 years younger than me.” The wife, and the fairy, were deeply disappointed, but, a wish is a wish.

So, the fairy waved her magic wand and poof!…the husband became 92 years old.

The moral of this story: Men who are ungrateful husbands should remember fairies are female…..
