Keeping it light....

A salesman walking along the beach found a bottle. When he rubbed it, lo and behold, a genie appeared.

“I will grant you three wishes,” announced the genie. “But since Satan still hates me, for every wish you make, your rival gets the wish as well — only double.”

The salesman thought about this for a while. “For my first wish, I would like ten million dollars,” he announced.

Instantly the genie gave him a Swiss bank account number and assured the man that $10,000,000 had been deposited. “But your rival has just received $20,000,000,” the genie said.

“I’ve always wanted a Ferrari,” the salesman said.

Instantly a Ferrari appeared. “But your rival has just received two Ferrari's,” the genie said. “And what is your last wish?”

“Well,” said the salesman, “I’ve always wanted to donate a kidney for transplant.”


This made me chuckle.  I'm a bundle of nerves today.  Procedure tomorrow.  Just have a weird feeling.



  1. Hope all went well Steve. Thinking about you and praying you have a speedy recovery.

  2. I'm sure everything will go just fine. I'm already looking forward to happy update in the near future.

  3. He could have donated 1 kidney and part of his liver.
