What it would be like to be six again...

I usually delete most mails forwarded to me. But seeing Valentine's Day is near, I suggest that wives and girlfriends read this properly and husbands and boyfriends, take note! I have sort of adapted the story a bit and given it a local flavour.

The husband asked his wife what she'd like for Valentine’s Day.

"I'd love to be six again," she replied.

On the morning of 14th February, he woke up early, got up, made her a nice big bowl of Cornflakes with prunes and nuts and then took her off to Sunway Lagoon. What a day!

They went on every ride in the park. They frolicked in the pool. They went into the tunnel and squeel with delight as they splash into the water again. He chased her around the garden and even tried to carry her piggy back, before going to the skating rink. And five hours later she staggered out. Her head was reeling and her stomach felt upside down. Her limbs were aching.

They drove to a McDonald's where her loving husband ordered her a Happy Meal with extra fries and a refreshing chocolate shake. Then it was off to a movie to see the latest blockbuster, a hot-dog, 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 precious 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.

"Is that what this crazy day was all about? You idiot, I meant my dress size!"

The moral of the story: Even when a man is listening, he's still gonna get it wrong!!!

So, ladies, spell it loud and clear what you want for tomorrow!!

Agree. Must make it very clear if possible provide the spellings. Dont give hints. They cant read your facial expressions. So just go on and tell it to them like the way it is!

kakteh,
i ask my husband to goreng ikan. and he did! just goreng it saja2. without kunyit or garam. when i asked, kenapa tak taruh kunyit and garam? he reply dgn selamba, 'eh, tak cakap pun'
memang salahku. :( rupanya dia tak pernah goreng ikan seumur hidup. Men!

Also the moral is don't ask impossible thing. I would never ask to be a size six sebab ianya takkan terjad.

Kak Teh said...

kusyi, that's the funniest story i've ever heard!!! I think memang Men ni keturunan Pak Pandir. Ingat tak Mak Andeh suruh mandikan anak?
Lollies - yes, either they pretend not to hear or they pretend not to understand.
Honeytar: They never win? Its just a trick, am sure!

kak teh,

can't blame the husband... the wife says i want to be 6 again and it was unclear whether size six or 6 years old. so the wish should be i would like to be size 6 again...
things can be interpreted differently by different people... read my post in my blog about women and colours...

shidah said...

kak teh: i have to be so direct...kalau tak, tak merasa le, as hubby is so blur abt any clue given. there was once i have to pay first for a handbag since my hubby left his wallet - which he reimburse later with interest. ha!ha!ha!

Kak Teh said...

shidah, kalau ada interest tak apa lah...

Ms.B said...

Happy Valentine's, Kak Teh! And yes, men need everything to be spelt out to them. Their intentions are noble, but women are such perfectionists and finicky, better to let them KNOW what we want - otherwise sure rosak one!
