To go along with the trading in for younger models

A married couple in their early 60s was celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary 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! — 2 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 92 years old.

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