I finally figured out how to get The Daily Prompt sent to my email! Yay me! Mostly they don’t interest me, but this one I liked so I’ll give it a shot.

DAILY PROMPT: Generous Genies
Remember those lovely genies who grant wishes? Well, you’re one and you’ve just been emancipated from your restrictive lamp. You can give your three wishes to whomever you want. Who do you give your three wishes to, and why?
* * * * *
Since The Daily Prompt lives in a land where the rules change if you want them to, I’m doing just that today.
If I were an escaping genie and was able to make off with three wishes, I’d give them to three DIFFERENT people and tell them to think VERY carefully before deciding what they want because they only get ONE shot at this. So who would I give them to?
My first wish would go to my sister, Cindy, whose husband, Greg is now almost completely paralyzed from the lung cancer treatments he’s been going through for three years. They have some BIG decisions ahead of them about his on-going care. They could use all the help they can get.
The second wish would be for my son Bran. He lived such a charmed life while he was growing up. A+ student in school, two college degrees, etc., etc. Then he met his wife on line and his life fell apart. He’s at a crossroads now, embarking on a divorce after a 5-year separation, and he needs to make some decisions about what direction his life will go in.
The third wish would go to Drollery. All his life he’s built up such huge expectations around everything he tries to do and he always ends up disappointed. I have no clue what he would do with this gift, but I’d give it to him just the same.
THEN I would take myself off to spend an extended vacation in a little cottage by the sea where all my friends would be welcome to come and stay as long as they like. We would take long walks on he beach and NEVER run out of things to say! 😀
Oh wait!!! I forgot to save a wish for me to BUY that little cottage. Oh well. We’d pitch a tent. LOL
