George was sick and tired of going to work every day while his wife stayed at home.
He wanted her to see what he went through each day, so he prayed :-
“Dear Lord, I go to work every day and put in 8 hours of hard work, 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 Georgina. She arose, cooked breakfast for her mate, awakened the kids, set out their school clothes, fed them breakfast, packed their lunches, drove them to school, came home picked up the dry cleaning, took it to the cleaners and stopped at the bank to draw money to pay the electricity and telephone bills.
Georgina drove to the electricity company and the phone company and paid the bills, went grocery shopping, came home and put away the groceries. She cleaned the cat’s litter box and bathed the dog.
By then it was already 1:00 pm, so she hurried to make the beds, do the laundry, vacuum, dust, and sweep and mop the kitchen floor.
She rushed to the school to pick up the kids and got into an argument with them on the way home which she had to sort out in a gentle ‘motherly’ fashion.
She set out cookies and milk and got the kids organised to do their homework, then set up the ironing board and was able to watch a bit of TV while she did the ironing.
By then it was 4:30 pm, so she began peeling potatoes and washed greens for salads. She prepared the chops and fresh vegetables and got everything ready in time for an early dinner.
After supper, Georgina cleaned the kitchen, ran the dishwasher, folded laundry, bathed the kids, and put them to bed.
At 9:00 pm she was exhausted and although her chores weren’t finished for the day, she went to bed where she was expected to make love, which she managed to get through without complaint.
The next morning Georgina awoke and immediately knelt by the bed and prayed:-
“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, O 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 9 months though, because you got pregnant last night!”
