A lamp in the sand

You find a lamp in the sand at your favorite beach, in the desert, or other unexpected place. When you touch it a Jinn emerges and offers you one wish. What would you wish for? The following assumptions apply:

  • Your Jinn has great powers, but not ultimate power. He cannot simply remake the world.
  • Nothing you wish for can get you more wishes–you only get the one.
  • As tends to be the case in so many tales of Jinn, the Jinn’s method for making your wish come true might not be exactly what you expect.
  • Your wish must be simple; no legal documents!

Free-write about what you wish for, what the Jinn actually does in response to your wish, and what happens as a result. Consider giving the Jinn a personality that shapes his actions.
