There once was this guy that got a dirty old lamp for his birthday. He cleaned it up and POOF!–out popped a genie!
“I shall give you three wishes. You may have anything you like.”
So the guys thinks for a minute and says, “I would like a billion dollars.”
“You shall have it,” and the genie grants him the wish. “Anything else?”
The guy thinks for a while. Then, “I would like a VW Bug with A/C, convertible, power locks, power windows, satellite radio, you know the works.”
“Your wish is my command. What is your last wish?”
“Hmmm. I think I’ll save it for a rainy day.”
“Okay, suit yourself,” says the genie.
So the guy gets in his new VW and goes for a drive to show all his friends. He turns on the radio. There’s a very familiar commercial on. The guy starts singing to it: “I wish I was an Oscar Meyer Wiener.”
Being vague is just as bad as that other thing.
Thought for the day
Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. 2 Corinthians 9:6 (NIV)
No farmer considers sowing seeds an expense. He sees it as an investment.
