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


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.
