Bishop was sick and tired of going to work every day while his wife Daphne stayed at home.He wanted her to see what he went through so he prayed: “My dear God;I go to work every day and put in eight hours while my wife just stays at home.I want her to know what I am doing,so please allow her body to switch with mine for a day. Amen.”God, in his infinite science, agreed the Bishop’s wish.The next morning, sure enough,Bishop awoke as his wife Daphne.
He got out from bed, cooked breakfast for his partner,awakened the children, 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 pay bills,went grocery shopping, balanced the check book.
Bishop cleaned the dog’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,onions and washing vegetables for salad, breaded the pork chops and snapped fresh beans for dinner. After dinner,Daphne’s body(Bishop)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
The next morning, he awoke and immediately knelt by the bed and said: – “My dear God, 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,let us trade back.”
God,in his infinite wisdom, answered: “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.”
