    A man was sick and tired
    of going to work every day
    while his wife stayed home.
    He wanted her to see
    what he went through so he prayed:
    'Dear Lord:
    I go to work every day and put
    in 8 hours while my wife
    merely stays at home.
    I want her to know what
    I go through.
    So, please allow her body to
    switch with mine for a day.

    God, in his infinite wisdom,
    granted the man's wish.
    The next morning, sure enough,
    the man awoke as a woman...
    He arose, cooked breakfast
    for his mate,
    Awakened the kids,
    Set out their school clothes,
    Fed them breakfast,
    Packed their lunches,
    Drove them to school,
    Came home and picked
    up the dry cleaning,
    Took it to the cleaners
    And stopped at the bank
    to make a deposit,

    Went grocery shopping,
    Then drove home to put
    away the groceries,

    Paid the bills and balanced
    the check book.
    He cleaned the cat's litter box
    and bathed the dog..
    Then, it was already 1 P.M.
    And he hurried to make the beds,
    Do the laundry, vacuum,
    Dust, And sweep and mop
    the kitchen floor.
    Ran to the school to pick up
    the kids and got into an argument
    with them on the way home.
    Set out milk and cookies and
    got the kids organized to do
    their homework.
    Then, set up the ironing board
    and watched TV while he
    did the ironing.
    At 4:30 he began peeling
    potatoes and washing
    vegetables for salad,
    breaded the pork chops
    and snapped
    fresh beans for supper.

    After supper,
    He cleaned the kitchen,
    Ran the dishwasher,
    Folded laundry,
    Bathed the kids, And put
    them to bed.
    At 9 P.M. He was exhausted
    and, though his daily chores
    weren't finished, he went to
    bed where he was expected to
    make love, which he managed
    to get through without complaint.

    The next morning, he awoke
    and immediately knelt by the
    bed and said: -
    Lord, I don't know what
    I was thinking.
    I was so wrong to envy my
    wife's being able to stay
    home all day.
    Please, Oh! Please,
    let us trade back.. Amen!'
    The Lord, in his infinite wisdom, replied:

    "My son, I feel you have
    learned your lesson and
    I will be happy to change
    things back to the way
    they were.
    But you'll have to wait
    nine months, though.
    You got pregnant last night"
