A husband had a doctor’s appointment and asked his wife to accompany him. After the doctor thoroughly examined the husband, he spoke to the wife.
The doctor said, “Your husband has a – life-threatening illness that needs special treatment and if he doesn’t get it, he could die”.
The wife replied: “What is it? What can I can do to help my husband recover?”
The doctor said:
- Every day you must make him a good breakfast and send him off to work in a pleasant frame of mind;
- Fix him a healthy lunch, when he comes home at noon and give him lots of peace and quiet.
- When he comes home at night, have a wonderful meal already prepared with all of his favorite foods. Don’t ever ask him to help with household chores and don’t complain or upset him in any way;
- Make sure that he is sexually satisfied several times a week.In time, your husband will be fully recovered if you follow each of these steps.
When the husband and wife were driving home, the husband turned to his wife and asked: “What did the doctor say to you about my – check-up?”
“You’re gonna die”, she replied.
