It will be my wife’s job

“You need to do a site change.” 

My son replied, “I can’t do it by myself. Its in my arm. I can only do leg sites.”  

I asked him when this happened. He used to do almost all of site changes except the one arm that he couldn’t reach.  “What are you going to do when you leave home?”

“You are going to have to come over to where I am living and do it for me.  Not to worry though, I will stretch my site changes out to every four days to give you a bit of a break.”  He paused for a second thinking,”It will be a bit tougher though if I have to move away for work.  You will have to fly out to where ever I am.  I can’t afford to pay your travel though because I will need my entire pay cheque. I am sure you can work it out.”  

By now I am standing with my mouth hanging open truly amazed by his logic and my older son is rolling on the floor laughing at him.  My older son asked “How long do you expect her to travel?”

“Only until I get married. Once I have a wife it will be her job to do my site changes.”  

I pray he gets a wife that will see his logic!
