Wishes

After carefully weighing

all of my options,

I used the first of my

three wishes,

granted to me by the genie,

for one million fishes.

***

The genie nodded his head

and said,

“I here-by grant you one million wishes!”

***

I shook my head in

frustration.

I explained to him that

I had said, f-i-s-h-e-s!

One million fishes.

***

The genie just stopped

& gave me a real funny look.

And then,

it suddenly hit me —

this guy was not listening

to me at all.

  1. Welcome to my world. I am a cancer survivor with no tongue. I go to Starbucks and order “One large Black Coffee.Please, four sugars.”- The response: “I am sorry Sir, we don’t serve elephants here.” My thought: If I were ordering an elephant- why would I be at Starbucks?
