Oh, the Wonder of Anniversaries

Since my anniversary is today, I've got a funny story about an anniversary for you . . .

40 years of marriage
A married couple in their early 60s was celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary in a quiet, romantic little restaurant.

Suddenly, a tiny yet beautiful fairy appeared on their table. She 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.'

The wife answered, 'Oh, I want to travel around the world with my darling husband.

The fairy waved her magic wand and - poof! - two tickets for the Queen Mary II appeared in her hands.

The husband thought for a moment: 'Well, this is all very romantic, but an opportunity like this will never come again. Aloud, he said, '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 this story: Men who are ungrateful beasts should remember fairies are female.

Love is the only thing that can be divided without being diminished.

And I truly thank God that my husband isn't like that! LOL
