The Genie’s Power

“Who has disturbed my slumber?” a voice boomed from a plume of smoke pouring from an ancient oil lamp.

Gideon watched with delight.  All his years searching had come to this; he found a genie.

“I get three wishes right?” Gideon asked.

The genie looked disappointed, “can I at least get a ‘hello’? Maybe some small talk before the wish stuff?  I’ve been in there for decades.  Is savory food in jello molds still a thing? Someone wished for that. I made that happen. Disgusting.”

“You did that?”

“Sadly, yes.”

“You know what, keep the wishes.  I can’t handle this.”
