A man was walking along the beach
in California and found a bottle. He looked around and didn't
see anyone so he opened the bottle. A genie appeared and thanked
the man for letting him out. The genie said, " I am so grateful
to get out of that bottle that I will grant you any wish, but
I can only grant one."
The man thought for a while and finally
said, "I have always wanted to go to Hawaii. I've never been
able to go because I cannot fly, Airplanes are much too frightening
for me. On a boat, I see all that water and I become very sea
sick. So I wish for a road to be built from here to Hawaii.
The genie thought for a few minutes
and finally said, "No, I don't think I can do that. Just
think of all the work involved. Consider all the piling needed
to hold up a highway and how deep they would have to go to reach
the bottom of the ocean. Imagine all the pavement needed. No,
that is just too much to ask."
The man thought for a few minutes
and then told the genie, "There is one other thing I have
always wanted. I would like to be able to understand women. What
makes them laugh and cry, why are they temperamental, why are
they so difficult to get along with, when they want attention,
when they don't. Basically, what makes them tick."
The genie considered for a few minutes
and said, "So, did you want two lanes or four?"
