Sympathy Pains

Jacob and Leah Lewin were expecting their first child and signed up for birthing classes.

“Ok everyone,” said the instructor trying to get everyone’s attention. “We are going to do an exercise now, that’s purpose is to help the men sympathize with their partners.”

“We have here what’s called a pregnancy suit,” said the instructor, holding up an artificial stomach with a strap. “This imitates the feeling of being pregnant. Which husband volunteers to be the first one to try it on?”

“I will” said Jacob, taking the suit and trying it on. “This isn’t too bad,” said Jacob, walking around the room. “I think I could get used to this.”

“Ok”, said the instructor smiling. “Now I would like you to bend down and pick up my pen from the floor.”

“You want me to pick it up?” Jacob said hesitantly, “Just as I would if I was pregnant?”

“Yes!” said the instructor.

“Honey,” said Jacob turning to his spouse “do you mind picking up that pen for me?”
