Fandango Provocative Question # 121 – 3 Wishes

Fandango is the host of Fandango Provocative Question


Welcome once again to Fandango’s Provocative Question.

For this week’s provocative question I’m going with more fun than provocative.

Let’s say you found a fancy bottle, rubbed it, and a wish-granting genie was released. This week’s provocative question is this:

What three wishes would you ask the genie to grant you?


It is always fun to imagine “what if” scenarios!

If I find a fancy bottle.....
If I opened it.....
Or rubbed it......
And if a genie appeared.....
And asked me to wish for three things!

The question here is not what I’ll wish for, the question should be will I wish for something or say thank you but no thank you?

Wishing on magic lamps or bottles never solved the problems we are facing, as individuals or community or the world at large. Even in the fantasy tale, it didn’t solve any of Aladdin’s troubles. In fact he landed in more of a mess because of the wishes. At the end, he was saved by his courage and by telling the truth.

So if I ever came across a genie, willing to grant me three wishes, I would politely decline and tell him to find some other occupation in life!

I know it’s a boring answer, but I’m being honest here.

  1. I don’t think it’s boring at all but I think I’d wish for the genie to have the wishes. Perhaps he’d be able to free himself 😊

  2. I know the real problems of the world aren’t going to be solved by a genie — not real or cinematic. But we can dream that we might get a little piece of freedom from want if not true salvation. I’m not even sure salvation is available to humans anymore. We may have already crossed that line.

    1. I think the door to salvation is open till we die. The point is, are we looking for salvation or have humans thrown the idea into trash?


  3. Not a boring answer at all! There are no magic genies to make our dreams come true. Only vision and hard work and cooperation will do that. But it is fun to pretend now and then.
