A short tale about being careful with what you wish for...
For the past three hours, three men have been climbing that very mountain because this was something that they have always wanted to do as children; But now, they have finally made it, the very top of that same mountain that they have climbed.
But then, the men see a lamp, and one of the men rubbed it, and then a genie appeared! The genie then offered each of the men one carefully pondered wish. The first man wished that he was in Hawaii with a bunch of beautiful girls, and then the genie granted his wish. Then the second man wished that he was in New York City, and then the genie granted his wish.
Then the genie asked the third man what HE wished for; Then he pondered and pondered, and then he said, "You know what, genie? I wish they were all back!"
And then the genie granted his wish, and he was gone! Then the third man's two friends returned.
Well, you know what they say-Be VERY careful what you wish for! Yuk, yuk, yuk, yuk, yuk!
