    An older couple were constantly forgetting things, so one of their friends suggested writing them down. One evening Wife told Husband she wanted some ice cream.
    He says: "OK, I'll get you some.
    She says: "Write it down."
    He says: "Just going to the kitchen. I can remember ice cream."
    She says: "With chocolate syrup. Write it down."
    He says: "I can remember ice cream with chocolate syrup."
    She says: "And peanuts. Write it down."
    He says: "I can remember ice cream with chocolate syrup and peanuts."
    She says: "With whipped cream on top. Write it down."
    He says: "I can remember ice cream with chocolate syrup and peanuts with whipped cream on top."
    After a while he comes back and puts a cheeseburger with bacon, lettuce and tomato down in front of her.
    She says: "Were's my fries?"

    This older gentleman is telling a friend about the delicious food he and his wife had at the restaurant last night. His friend asked what the name of the restaurant was.

    He thought a minute then he said, "What's the name of that flower? It's red, smells real good, and has thorns on the stem?"

    His friend said, "Rose?"

    He said, "Yeah, that's it". Then turning to his wife he yelled, "Hey Rose, what was the name of that place we went to last night for dinner?"

    A guy I grew up with back in NY and still keep in touch with pulled a lulu of a prank on his wife some years back. She normally wakes up before he does, heads off to the kitchen to get the coffee and breakfast going, then returns to the bedroom to wake him up. She wakens him, he sits bolt upright in bed - wide eyed - and shouts "WHO ARE YOU, WHAT'RE YOU DOING IN MY HOUSE?". Scared the bejabbers out of her, and of course he's splitting his sides laughing. He didn't say but I've a feeling there were some consequences at some point down the line. :)

    Not nice to play tricks on the wife.:(
    Bought a house and in the garage was an old gas lawn mower. Pulled it down, gave it a once over and the wife came out to see what I was doing.
    I told her "hold this wire" and I gave it a pull.:yikes::yikes:
    That was 50+ years ago and to this day if I ask her to hold something, her first reply is ALWAYS, it won't shock me will it? Love that Lady to no end. :love::love:

    You're lucky that she didn't "kick your grass" on that one!

    ….or slit your scrotum with a dull lawn mower blade and run your leg through the slit

    I've always heard that your memory is the third thing to go. I forget what the first two are.
