A Wish

I met a fairy today. She said she would grant me one wish.

"I want to live forever." I said.

"Sorry," said the fairy, "I'm not allowed to grant wishes like that!"

"That doesn't seem very fair," I responded.

"Nope, it's not, but we've had too many people making such demands so the new directive is that if you want something like that, you have to indicate a potential historical event with which you want to death to coincide -- like man landing on Mars."

"Fine," I said, "then I want to die 48 hours after our government realizes all that it's doing wrong and reforms itself to truly serve the people."

"You crafty %$#@&!." said the fairy.

Moral of the Story: You can achieve the same goal through a variety of ways.
