Today's #flashfiction A Genie Finds A Genie

Played Scrabble with Grandma today. Managed to score 100 points in one play. Scrabblicious. Anyway onto the flash fiction!

A Genie Finds A Genie

          One day a genie named Tom found another genie. The genie got three wishes, as per genie company policy.
           First Wish: Tom wished for freedom from being a genie.
           Tom then became a talking chicken.
           Second Wish: To stop being a talking chicken.
           He became a genie once again.
           “Why are you doing this to me?” He asked the other genie he found.
           “Sorry my genie brother. It's company policy to mess with anybody who wishes, even if they are another genie.” He frowned.
           “Well I know how this goes then. I'm not even using my last wish...I know what kind of things company policy makes you do.” Tom knew the kind of things genie company policy made genies do to wishers and what he'd done to wishers himself. “Thanks for taking it easy on me. I'm heading back to my lamp.”

           The lesson here? Not even a genies do well with genies. So don't take wishes from strangers kids!
