“Three wishes,” he’d said. I considered world peace but then remembered I needed a car and eradication of my debts. I got both. Last wish was tricky. Then, “Make me fly!”
Coo-coo, damn genie!
TGI Trifextra Weekend! I realised that I have come to look forward to this Friday snippet. It was a photo prompt this week. We have to choose one picture out of three. My eyes just fell on this one and stuck there. Click here for other fascinating takes on this prompt.
heh, damn genie indeed.
I’m glad, thank you 🙂
Careful what you wish for!
Never accept wishes from a genie.
That would probably be the safest way to go about it.
Haha! Yep, those genies…tricksy.
They are indeed.
Like this a lot. The lesson? Genies are okay, but be specific!
Exactly! Far better to write a wish and have it vetted by your lawyer before saying it out loud.
I actually laughed out loud at this! Maybe I am getting giddy from reading so many interesting poems or else, perhaps, you just did a damn fine job! I prefer to think that latter is correct! Well done. Thanks for brightening up my evening.
Oh any time Cobbie 😀
I laughed out loud when I first read it, too. Embarrassing, because I was at work! Great work on this one 🙂
Gosh I hope I didn’t get you in trouble! I usually read these stories at work too and, inevitably, someone always asks why I’m smirking. I’m glad I made you laugh in any case.
What a cool entry! Love it! Be careful what you wish for, huh?
Exactly! Thank you, I’m glad you enjoyed it.
😀 Good one!
lmao Should have been more specific…
Be careful what you wish for! Nice work!
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: be careful what you wish for!
You can never say it enough!
I enjoyed this piece.
I’m happy you did 🙂
Ha! Genies are some of the worst of the tricksters!!
They are, aren’t they!
Bahahaha! This was another one that made me laugh out loud! I didn’t see that one coming! Well done!
Thank you 🙂
Ha!ha!Too cute!loved it & have a feeling this one will make it to the top three,Sandra:-)
Lets not be so ambitious. I’m glad you enjoyed it 🙂
Ambitious?Now you made me giggle!Well,we shall see about that;-)
Ha ha! Were you looking for something more glamorous? 🙂
Probably someting more on the lines of Superman 🙂
Ha, solid last line, and great concept. Good stuff!
Thanks Brian 🙂
