Of Wishes and Genies

Once upon a time, a little boy found an old plastic box (carefully preserved by his mommy, to store whatever-manages-to-fit-inside at unspecified-later-date).

To make things interesting, his Mommy said to him: ‘Rub the box and see if a Genie appears!’

The little boy is very excited, and rubs the box vigorously. The mommy jumps with bang, and announced, in a booming voice: ‘I am the Genie. Make a wish, little master’.

The boy did not flinch. He replied, ‘I wish for Princess Jasmine’

The mommy gaped!

The boy repeated himself: ‘I said, I wish for Princess Jasmine. She lives THERE’ (pointing towards the TV).

So off went the mommy, to make his little wish come true… to turn the TV on to seek Princess Jasmine!

Incidentally, it snowed that day, and there was no signal 😦 so the Genie was quite powerless!

And then, Voila! Youtube rescued the Genie.

And this is what the little boy watched:
