    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 checkbook.

    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:

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