Saturday Smile

A man asked his wife,
"What would you most like for your birthday?"

She said, "I'd love to be ten again."

On the morning of her birthday, he got her up
bright and early and off they went to a theme park.
He put her on every ride in the park
--the Death Slide, The Screaming Loop, the Wall of
Fear. Everything there was, she had a go.

She staggered out of the theme park five hours
later, her head reeling and her stomach upside down.
Into McDonalds they went, where she was given a
Double Big Mac with extra fries and a strawberry shake.

Then off to a theater to see Star Wars--more burgers,
popcorn, cola and sweets.
At last she staggered home with her husband and
collapsed into bed.

Her husband leaned over and asked,
"Well, dear, what was it like being ten again?"

One eye opened and she groaned,
"Actually I meant dress size."
