Anniversary Wish, Six AM



Anniversary Wish


A married couple in their early 60s was celebrating their 40th weddinganniversary in a quiet, romantic little restaurant. Suddenly, a tiny yet beautiful fairy appeared on their table.She said, 'For being such an exemplary married couple and for being loving to each other for all this time, I will grant you each a wish.


The wife answered, 'Oh, I want to travel around the world with my darling husband.' The fairy waved her magic wand and - poof! - two tickets for the Queen Mary II appeared in her hands.


The husband thought for a moment: 'Well , this is all very romantic, but an opportunity like this will never come again. I'm sorry my love, but my wish is to have a wife 30 years younger than me.'


The wife, and the fairy, were deeply disappointed, but a wish is a wish.So the fairy waved her magic wand and poof!...the husband became 92years old.


The moral of this story: Men who are ungrateful bastards should remember fairies are female.....

Thanks, Leslee.

For those of you where its already Monday morning:

Six a.m.

And the morning comes like a headache
Refusing to be reasonable,
A quivering lipped trumpeter brazenly off key.

I find each muscle chained to the bed,
Victims of gravity maliciously reapportioned,
In need of conformation that rigor mortis has not set in.

My mind rattles around searching for a kick
That will propel it, lurch after lurch,
Toward the affirmation of my name.

Through it all, a single index finger,
Slightly trembling, yet resolute
Stretches forward toward the coffeemaker start button.
