A man was walking along a California beach and stumbled across an old lamp.
He picked it up and rubbed it and out popped a genie. The genie said "OK,
You released me from the lamp, ... blah blah blah. This is the fourth time
this month and I'm getting a little sick of these wishes so you can forget
about three. You only get one wish!" The man sat and thought about it for a
while and said, "I've always wanted to go to Hawaii, but I'm afraid to fly,
and I get very seasick. So could you build me a bridge to Hawaii so I can
drive over there to visit?"
The genie laughed and said, "That's impossible. Think of the logistics of
that. How would the supports ever reach the bottom of the Pacific? Think of
how much concrete...how much steel!! No, think of another wish."
The man said OK and tried to think of a really good wish. Finally he said,
"I've been married and divorced four times. My wives always said I don't
care and that I'm insensitive. I wish that I could understand women, know
what they are thinking when they give me the silent treatment, know why they
are crying, know what they want when they say 'nothing'.....Can you help me
to understand women??"
The genie said, "You want that bridge two lanes or four?"
