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 create
a trade in our bodies."

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 draw out money to pay the power bill and telephone bill,
drove to the power company and the phone company and
paid the bills, went grocery shopping, came home and put
away the groceries. 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 cookies and
milk 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
greens 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

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."

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 have to wait
9 months, though. You got pregnant last night."
