Humour: A busy man muted this prayer

Posted by African Press International on September 21, 2007

God, I go to work everyday and put in 8 hours while my wife merely stays at home. I want to know what I go through, so please allow her body to switch with mine for a day. Amen.

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 theis school clothes, fed them breakfast, packed their lunches, drove them to school, came home and picked dry cleaning, took it to the cleaners and stopped to 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 leaned 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, vaccum, dust, and sweep and mop the kitchen floor. Ran to the school to pick up the kids and got an argument with them on the way home. Set out milk and cookies ands got the kids organized to do their jhomework, then set up the ironing board and watched the T.V 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, she 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 woke and immediately knelt by the bed and said:

“Lord, I dont’t know whatI was thinking. I was wrong to envy my wife’s being able to stay home all day. Please, oh! oh! please, let us trade back”

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. You’ll just have to wait nine months, You got pregnant last night.”
