Laughing Medicine: Three Wishes

A lady with bone cancer had trouble getting to sleep at night because of the pain. To make matters worse, her tomcat’s yowling would wake her up just as she fell asleep. “I don’t need this,” she raged. She had the tomcat neutered. A few months later she found an ancient lantern up in her attic. Just for kicks, she rubbed it. Immediately a giant genie appeared and offered her three wishes. First, she wished to be cancer free. It was done. Next, she wished to be young. It was done. Amazed, she asked for the third and final wish. “Bring me a handsome young prince.” The genie looked around and the only living thing in sight was her cat, which he immediately transformed into a handsome young prince. She swooned into the prince’s arms. When she awoke, the prince said, “Darling, I’ll always be at your side, but aren’t you sorry you had me neutered?”
