Surprised not one person has wished for this yet....
You get that wish, the rest doesn't really matter. There are plenty of miserable rich people and very content 'poor' people. I have a friend, a girl, that tries to fill a void with material things. It doesn't work. Money alone won't solve your problems, though I want money as much as the next guy.
But, if one wish were to be answered, and it was happiness, well that'd be okay with me.
Of course I want lots of money, a beautiful, sexy, trustworthy woman, and the ability to fly more than just my rented Cessna around. And a new liver, considering the copious amounts of alcohol I consume
On a related note, here's a joke:
A man walks into a restaurant with a full-grown
ostrich behind him. As he sits, the waitress comes over and asks for
The man says, "I'll have a hamburger, fries and a
coke," and turns to the ostrich, "What's yours?"
"I'll have the same," says the ostrich.
A short time later the waitress returns with the
"That will be $6.40 please," and the man reaches
into his pocket
and pulls out the exact change for payment.
The next day, the man and the ostrich come again
and the man says,
"I'll have a hamburger, fries and a coke," and the
"I'll have the same."
Once again the man reaches into his pocket and pays
with exact change.
This becomes a routine until late one evening, the
two enter again.
"The usual?" asks the waitress.
"No, this is Friday night, so I will have a steak,
and salad," says the man, "same for me," says the
A short time later the waitress comes with the
order and says,
"That will be $12.62." Once again the man pulls
out of his pocket and places it on the table.
The waitress can't hold back her curiosity any
"Excuse me, sir. How do you manage to always come
up with the
exact change out of your pocket every time?"
"Well," says the man, "several years ago I was
attic and I found an old lamp. When I rubbed it a
appeared and offered me two wishes.
My first wish was that if I ever had to pay for
I would just put my hand in my pocket and the right
money would always be there."
"That's brilliant!" says the waitress. "Most people
for a million dollars or something, but you'll
always be as rich
as you want for as long as you live!"
"That's right. Whether it's a gallon of milk or a
the exact money is always there," says the man.
The waitress asks, "One other thing, sir, what's
with the ostrich?"
The man sighs, pauses, and answers,
"My second wish was for a tall chick with long legs
who agrees with everything I say."
