I was sitting on the edge of the bed,watching my girl friend, who was looking at herself in the mirror. Since her birthday was not far off I asked what she’d like to have for her birthday.
“I’d like to be eight again”, she replied, still looking in the mirror ..
On the morning of her Birthday, I arose early, made her a nice big bowl of Coco Pops, and then took her to Chessington World of Adventure theme park. What a day! I put her on every ride in the park; the Dragons Fury, Ramases Revenge, The Black Buckaneer, everything there was.
Five hours later we staggered out of the theme park. Her head was reeling and her stomach felt upside down. I then took her to a McDonald’s where I ordered her a Happy Meal with extra fries and a chocolate shake.
Then it was off to a movie, popcorn, a bucket of pop and her favorite sweets, M&M’s. What a fabulous adventure!
Finally she wobbled home together with me and collapsed into bed exhausted.
I leaned over to her with a big smile and lovingly asked, “Well Dear, what was it like being eight again?”
Her eyes slowly opened and her expression suddenly changed.
“I meant my dress size, you f@*#*! idiot!!!!”
The moral of the story: Even though you think you’ve heard the requirements correctly, you should always read them back to the requestor to ensure you’ve fully understood correctly.
