A married couple got into an accident and the husband’s face was badly
burned. The doctor told him that they couldn’t graft any skin from his body
because he was too skinny. So the wife offered to donate some of her own skin.
However, the only skin on her body that the doctor felt was suitable would
have to come from her buttocks. The husband and wife agreed that they
would tell no one about where the skin came from and they requested that
the doctor also honor their secret. After all, this was a very delicate matter.
After the surgery was completed, everyone was astounded at the man’s
new face. He looked more handsome than he ever had before! All his
friends and relatives just went on and on about his youthful beauty!
One day, he was alone with his wife, and he was overcome with emotion at
her sacrifice. He said, “Dear, I just want to thank you for everything you did
for me. How can I possibly repay you?”
“My darling,” she replied. “I get all the thanks I need every time I see your
mother kiss you on the cheek.”
