8 Again

A man asked his wife what she'd like for her birthday.

"I'd love to be eight again." she replied.

The husband decided to grant her wish.

On the morning of her birthday, he arose early and made a big bowl of Cocoa Puffs for breakfast. He then took her to the local amusement park. They went on every ride: the Death Slide, the Wall of Fear and the Screaming Monster Roller Coaster. He bought her cotton candy and a balloon on a stick. He even won her a teddy bear by playing the knock-over-the-wooden-milk-bottles game.

Five hours later she staggered out of the theme park, head spinning.

He then brought her to McDonald's where he ordered her a Happy Meal with extra fries and a refreshing chocolate shake. Then it was off to the movies: a Pixar cartoon double feature, and for the concessions, a hot dog, popcorn, large Coke and 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 eight again?"

She sat up in bed, thought for a moment and then realized what her husband was getting at. "Oh, honey," she said, "When I said I wanted to be eight again, I meant my dress size!"
