The Genie of the Lamp

The genie exited the lamp, waving his arms about. "You have three wishes," he shouted, to which I had much doubt.

"Take your pick," he beckoned, "After all, people want a lot." "That's just it," I replied, "Everything I could want I've already got."

"Nonsense," he replied. "Humans are so needy." You give them something they've always wanted, and they become so greedy."

“But I don’t need anything more, I already have a house.” “I have food on my table, and a loving spouse.”

“Surely it could be bigger, perhaps you want a pool?” Don’t you want something, anything? Maybe a cat, a dog, or a mule?”

“I wish for nothing more than what I already have, and so I bid you farewell. I wish you all the best, my friend, now you may go back to the place that you dwell.”
