Wishing

I went to the wishing well. I made a wish. I threw in a quarter.

The wishing well said, “That’s not enough.”

I said, “What?”

The wishing well said, “The amount you paid, it’s not enough for what you want.”

I said, “Well, how much extra should I pay?”

The wishing well said, “What have you got?”

I counted the rest of my change. I said, “$1.45”

The wishing well said, “How about your wallet?”

I counted my cash. I said, “$74.00”.

The wishing well said, “$75.45.”

I said, “Are you kidding me?”

The wishing well didn’t say anything. I paid the $75.45.

I went home. I sat on my couch. I waited. I started feeling angry about the whole thing. Hours went by. I fell asleep.

I woke up. There was a ten foot chocolate Easter bunny wrapped in plastic next to me. I was so happy! I tore open the plastic and started in.
