One morning during breakfast, a doctor and his wife got involved in a fight that soon escalated into saying hurtful things in anger.
“Sex with you ain’t so great anyway!” the doctor yelled as he slammed the door shut behind him on his way to work.
During his lunch break, the doctor felt horrible as the morning’s fight replayed in his mind. He decided to call her and apologize, but it took several tries before she finally answered the call.
“What took you so long to answer?” the doctor asked. Curtly, his wife replied, “I was in bed.” The doctor frowned and looked at his watch. “It's almost 1 pm, what are you still doing in bed?”
Curly, she replied again,
“Getting a second opinion.”
After a long and fulfilling life, as the 97-year-old Cinderella sat watching the world go by with her cat companion, Bob, on her lap rocking in the chair, the Fairy Godmother suddenly appeared.
“Oh my, what a surprise to see you Fairy Godmother!” Cinderella exclaimed. Fairy Godmother smiled at her and said, "Cinderella, you have lived an exemplary life since I last saw you. Is there anything for which your heart still yearns?"
Cinderella gave it a few moments of thought, and since Prince Charming didn’t have much money sense, she started her first wish. “I'm living hand to mouth on my disability checks, and I wish I were wealthy beyond comprehension,” Cinderella said.
With one swish of the Fairy’s wand, Cinderella’s rocking chair turned into gold. “Thank you so much, Fairy Godmother!” Cinderella said.
“It's the least I can do my child, but what would you want for your second wish?” the Fairy Godmother replied.
Feeling the aches and pains of her age, Cinderella said, "I wish I were young and full of the beauty and youth I once had."
Again with the swoop of the Fairy’s wand, Cinderella regained her youthful beauty, but then the time came for her final wish. “What shall it be?” The Fairy Godmother enquired.
Bob had watched these transformations from a safe distance, and after Cinderella stared at him for a few moments, she said, "I wish for you to transform Bob, my old cat, into a kind and handsome young man."
Once more the Fairy Godmother’s wand did the trick, and in a flash, Bob turned into the most handsome man she had ever seen. “Congratulations, Cinderella, enjoy your new life,” the Fairy Godmother said before she vanished as quickly as she had appeared.
Cinderella could manage little else than stare at this perfect man before her, and after a few moments, Bob walked over to Cinderella. He held her close and whispered as he leaned in,
"Bet you're sorry now that you cut my nuts off!"
