Gustaf and Anna are having an elegant dinner to celebrate their 75th wedding anniversary.

Gustaf man leans forward and says softly to Anna, “Dear, there is something that I must ask you. It has always bothered me that our tenth child never quite looked like the rest of our children. Now I want to assure you that these 75 years have been the most wonderful experience I could have ever hoped for, and your answer cannot take that all that away. But, I must know, did he have a different father?”

Anna drops her head, unable to look Gustaf in the eyes, she paused for a moment and then confessed. “Yes. Yes, he did.” Gustaf is very shaken, the reality of what his wife was admitting hit him harder than he had expected. With a tear in his eyes, he asks “Who? Who was he? Who was the father?”

Again Anna drops her head, saying nothing at first as she tried to muster the courage, to tell the truth to Gustaf. Then, finally, she says, “You.”

“Be nice to your children, for they will choose your rest home.”
