A married couple in their early 60s was out celebrating their 35th wedding anniversary in a quiet, romantic little restaurant.
Suddenly, a tiny yet beautiful fairy appeared on their table and 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.”
“Oh, I want to travel around the world with my darling husband” said the wife. The fairy waved her magic wand and – poof! – two tickets for the Queen Mary II luxury liner appeared in her hands. Then it was the husband’s turn. He 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 the story: Men who are ungrateful husbands should remember fairies are female.
