I Got What I Wanted

I took another break from work in LA. I went for a walk in the desert. Suddenly there was an earthquake. I fell to the ground. I watched in fear as the cactus swayed around me.

The earth cracked open. I looked down and could see magma in the center of the earth. It was a beautiful orange. I got a quarter out of my pocket, threw it into the crevice and made a wish. The earthquake stopped. I smiled.

An aardvark was watching me from a few feet away. The aardvark said, “What did you just do?”

I said, “I wished that the earth would stop shaking so I could watch the quarter melt into the lava.”
