A Thing of Beauty.
Having an extremely busy day before me I thought I would keep this short and to the point. The moral of my blog today is simple, beware of what you wish for.
An old man had been married to his wife for 50 years and they had just finished celebrating their golden wedding anniversary. They had a lovely time with family and friends string memories and remembering happy times together.
It was getting late and his wife , one year younger than him at 69 had decided the day had been tiring and she was off to bed. He was just sitting quietly bringing the day to a close. Just at that a genie appeared before him. The genie told him that he was there to grant him one wish and one wish only.
The old man thought and remembered when he got married and his first night together with his beautiful young wife. He foolishly thought he would like to experience something like that again. So he said to the genie that he would like to waken up tomorrow beside a female twenty years his junior.
The wish being granted he went to bed. The next day he woke up to discover he was now 89.
A very Scottish story tells of the man fishing in Loch Ness.
