I had been out for a walk that morning nice and early, so that I missed the myriad of people that always seemed to be walking their dogs. It was a nice beach and needed to be seen on its own, without the company of too many people. Walking along, I absentmindedly kicked the shells along the shoreline, when I spotted something shiny. It was just sticking out of the sand, and bending down I retrieved it from its watery grave to have a closer look.
It turned out to be a medallion that looked and felt like gold. I cleaned it up a bit with the sleeve of my jacket and noticed it had some writing on one side. It was too dirty to read it there, so I decided to take it home where I had some good metal cleaner. Upon reaching my house, I began to clean it up more thoroughly. The writing was now very clear, and read –
“If thy heart be true, three wishes I give to you.”
I laughed at first, thinking no, I’m not that lucky, but I wasn’t a stupid person and if this thing could grant me three wishes, I wasn’t about to blow it. Therefore, I sat thinking very carefully, about what I would wish for, if this were genuine.
If you’ve ever done this, even as a game, you will know that it’s not as simple as that. I mean, many of you are thinking right now, how your first wish would be a pile of money. However, there are better things than just money. For example, if you wished that you were the luckiest person in the world, you wouldn’t need to wish for money—it would come to you. Alternatively, perhaps you would wish to be the best-looking guy/gal in the world. There again, what you would consider to be good-looking might not be everybody’s cup of tea.
So there I was, taking this wish thing a bit too seriously, and thinking about my very first wish. I quickly made up my mind what the first wish should be; it was based on all the time and money I had spent on getting to and from my destinations. Holding the medallion with both hands, I wished that I could go wherever I wanted to go in an instant. Of course, nothing happened, for I hadn’t chosen a destination yet. Putting the coin in my pocket, I said,
“I want to go back to the beach.”
Being back at the beach and jumping up into the air, I must have looked silly to anyone that was watching. However, I didn’t care; I had found the genuine article, something that we all wish would happen. I quickly got myself back home, where I had to consider my other two wishes very carefully. Now I have never been lucky with women, so those of you who have will not understand my next wish. For those of you who have the same trouble, you will identify with this need.
My second wish was that I be irresistible to any woman I desired. The wording to that one had to be spot on. I mean, if every woman desired you, you’d have a fair amount of dogs chasing you day and night. I was eager to try that one out, but I wanted to use the third wish now, just in case I inadvertently spoke a wish aloud that I didn’t intend. So I sat back to think; I had covered girls and travel but I still hadn’t covered money. I didn’t want to waste it on wishing for millions, simply because I wanted to think of something that would keep bringing the money in. Then I had it, the easiest and safest way to have money and for no one else to know I had money.
“I wish—that whenever I open my wallet there were ten, ten dollar bills.”
Reaching for my wallet, I opened it to find a hundred dollars. Taking it out and closing it, I opened it again and found another hundred dollars. It worked, I thought, getting to my feet and wondering where to go first. Then I remembered the nightclub I was in a couple of nights ago. Two gorgeous looking women had led me on all night, allowing me to buy the drinks and then when the night ended, they left with total strangers. At the time, I thought, it serves you right for being too ambitious, but now, I wanted to see what I had missed. The rest of the day, I spent getting ready for the night’s events, going from one shop to another, just to find the right outfit.
