"That's right. A real, genuine Djinn…"

"So, what did you say to him? Why was he so angry?"

"Well, he told me 'Before you start, you can't wish for more wishes.' and I said 'I wish you could.' That's when he hit me!"

I do all sorts of things. Mostly badly. Mostly better than others. I tell stories. Occasionally, I lie.
