The Stressed Husband
A woman accompanied her husband to the doctor's office. After his checkup, the doctor called the wife into his office alone.
The doctor said, "The news is not good. Your husband is suffering from a very severe disease, combined with overwhelming stress."
The wife replied, "That's terrible. Is there anything that can be done?"
The doctor said, " Your husband has to be relieved of all stress, and if you don't do the following, he will surely die."
"Each morning, fix him a healthy breakfast. Be pleasant, and make sure he is in a good mood. For lunch make him a nutritious meal he can take to work. And for dinner, prepare an especially nice meal for him. Don't burden him with chores, as this could further his stress."
"Also, don't discuss your own problems with him; it will only make his stress worse. Try to relax your husband in the evening by being pleasant and giving him plenty of back rubs. Encourage him to watch some type of team sporting event on television. And don't ignore his sexual needs.
"And, most importantly do your best to satisfy his every whim. If you can do this for the next ten to twelve months, I think your husband will regain his health completely."
The wife answered, "Thank you for being honest with me doctor. I understand perfecly what I have to do."
On the way home, the husband asked his wife, "What did the doctor say?"
"You're going to die," she replied.
