“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.

    Like this a lot. The lesson? Genies are okay, but be specific!

    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.

    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.
