I have a question for you.

Let’s say you’re wandering around a second hand shop or an antique store or something along that line and you see one of those Aladdin oil lamps and you decide “Oh what the hell!” and you give it a couple quick rubs. (nice long run on sentence, huh?)


Out pops in a puff of blue smoke a genie who says “I am the Genie of the lamp and you are my new master/mistress.  Normally you would get three wishes but I’m afraid I am suffering economic setbacks due to certain policies set in place by the current administration.  I’m also afraid of being deporting without a hearing if the Feds find me so you only get one quick wish and then I’m gone like the breeze that flows out the south end of a north bound camel.

What would you wish for?

OK, some constraints:

  • No murder, mayhem or harm to others in particular lil’ kids.
  • No forcing someone to fall in love with you.
  • No bringing back the dead.  That’s too much like the forthcoming zombie apocalypse and it’s just plain creepy.
  • No wishing to be a lawyer either because that’s just like bringing back the dead.
  • No cheating and wishing for more wishes.
  • No wishing Jason and Gary would get along.  That’s part of the WP entertainment anywho.

This is a one shot deal, so make it creative.  You could wish that your ex was married to someone just like him/her.  Or you could wish that the genie would double the POTUS’ IQ to 40 which really isn’t much of an improvement but hey, that’s your wish.  I wonder if you could wish that your ex had to spend a weekend listening to the POTUS go on and on and on but now I wonder if that would be cruel and unusual punishment.  No matter.

As for me I would wish for a couple good cups of coffee … and me on a beach … watching the sun rise … in French Polynesia … with bunches of girlies in bikinis going up and down the beach … soon.  I’m not creative.  I’m cold and hungry.

  1. Love this post Jim and I was smiling as I read this. Honestly, I’m a Libran and I take ages making up my mind … plus with all your constraints, hmmm. How about a wish for eternal peace and happiness or copious amounts of $$$ to ease the pressure for my kids. 🙂😎

  2. I’m a new follower, but couldn’t resist the urge to reply to this prompt.

    I wish I may
    I wish I might
    Do everything else
    In my life
    Just right
    -Me 😉

    (Hope the Genie doesn’t get tricksy just because I tried to wax poetic)

  3. Mine involves a super power – I would like to be invisible. I could come down your way when you are baking bread and steal some. I could go watch and see what your “trumpster” is really up and be a bit of a “trickster”. That would be fun.

  4. LOL … easy peasy … a never ending at home espresso machine with a tall dark semi-muscular scantily clad male barista named Onyx at the helm of said espresso machine, to make any and every type of coffee I want any time of the day or night 🙂

    1. yeh but having them get along would give Jason no one to blame … unless of course you would like to volunteer to be Gary’s replacement. I’ve heard about how you Texas ladies are so gracious and accommodating anywho. 🙂

  5. For me it would be localized at very specific. I want to be able to pay the mortgage each month without the pain and drama. Hell, just catching up would be a plus.

    Thanx for a wonderful 3-4 minutes Jim.

  6. I think I would wish that people would be nice and kind to all other kind and nice, people (let the buttholes be buttholes to each other), all the dried lakes and rivers were filled with fresh water, the deserts were no longer deserts, and I could live in a cottage in a seaside town, and garden, grow vegetables and take walks with my dogs. I would be happy if one any one of those three wishes came true.

  7. Oh that would be awful because I know I would blow it big time. I would stand there trying to think of the perfect wish and I would say “I wish I could think of the perfect wish” and bam, suddenly I would think of the perfect wish, but I already used up my one wish 😦

    Or I would say something like ” I wish Jim would read my blogs without me begging (subtly hinting or outright tell him to) and that he would comment so I knew he was there hahaha.

    Yeah, I don’t want any genie, I would blow it .
