Genie in a Bottle

Now What?: Write what comes next.
You have rubbed the magic lamp and a genie promises you three wishes.
Now what?

We Have A Winner!!! 03/10/10
I wish for millions of dollars
And the little man smiles at me,
Snaps his greasy fingers,
And I'm buried in cash from Monopoly.

I wish to be able to fly
And the little bastard smirks;
With another snappity snap,
I receive two plane tickets to Newark.

I wish for immortality
And he snaps his fingers once more;
Now I'm up to my neck in formaldehyde,
And thinking I should be more careful what I wish for.
Winner: Marc
Reason: A rhyme with a lesson. Nice work!

Wish #3 - I wish to be able to transfer wishes to others.

I wish he'd propose already!
I wish I could obtain the perfect job...
I wish for more wishes, because there's no way I'll be done--with marriage and a new job, much more to wish for. lol

I open my mouth to tell the genie how I want unlimited wishes, riches and thinner thighs. Before I can even spit out the first word, he jumps up, yells PSYCH!!!, and runs away laughing.
I am dejected. Disappointed. Downtrodden.
Stupid defective genies. I'm so writing Good Housekeeping about this. I want my wishes!

I'd like to be happy with any amount,
So contentment would be number three of my count.
But what will I do
With numbers one and two?
I'll take long life and a big bank account.

I don't want to live forever,
and money brings beggars no end.
So give me health, and happiness,
(and a supermodel for a girlfriend)

Three wishes for me:
To live healthy, love richly,
And to leave my mark.
