The man finds a bottle on the beach in Souther California. He gives a little rub and out pops a genie. The genie offers him one wish. The man wonders why not three wishes in the tradition of genies worldwide and the genie again offers only one wish, take it or leave it, and better make it a good one. The man, who always wanted to visit beautifuly Hawaii but was afraid to fly, asked for a highway to Hawaii.

The genie was crestfallen. "Do you have any idea what a highway to Hawaii would entail? How much concrete and iron? The SALT water and winds! It's 2,500 miles, and miles deep in places! Wouldn't there be something else, equally appealling, but a little more practical you might like?"

The man thinks it over and asks the genie to explain how women think. "Excuse me?" says the genie, not quite understanding. "Well," says the man, "like when she holds a dress up in front of her and asks me, How does this make me look? Do I look fat in this? Or when she says, I just saved \$200 and I ask how she did that and she says because they had a 2 for 1 sale."
