A Wishing Story

I found this version in Noelle Oxenhandler’s, The Wishing Year:

A married couple in their early sixties was out celebrating their thirty-fifth wedding anniversary in a quiet, romantic little restaurant.  Suddenly, a tiny yet beautiful fairy with pink wings, appeared on their table saying,

For being such an exemplary married couple and for loving each other all this time, I will grant you each a wish.”

“Oh, I want to travel around the world with my darling husband”, said the wife.

The fairy waved her magic wand and—poof! Two tickets for the Queen Mary II appeared in her hands.

Then it was the husband’s turn.  He thought for a moment and said, “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 this—fairies are females !
