Joke of the Week: Be Careful What You Wish For

A husband and wife were celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary along with both of their 60th birthdays. During the celebration, a fairy appeared and said that because they had been such a loving couple all these years, she would give them one wish each.

Being a faithful, loving spouse, the wife wanted her husband and herself to have a romantic vacation together, so she wished for them to travel around the world. The fairy waved her wand. BOOM! The wife had the tickets in her hand.

Next, it was the husband's turn, and the fairy assured him he could have any wish he wanted, too, all he needed to do was ask for his heart's desire. He paused for a moment, and then said, “Well, honestly, I'd like to have a woman 30 years younger than me.” The fairy picked up her wand. KABOOM! The husband turned 90!
