Three Wishes

A nursing assistant, a floor nurse and a charge nurse from a small nursing home were all having their lunch break in the break room.

Suddenly, a stately lady dressed in silk scarves and wearing large polished-stone jewelry walked in.

She grandly said, "I am Gina the Great. I'm so pleased with the way you've looked after my aunt that I'm going to grant you one wish each!"

Then she waved of her hand. There was a puff of smoke and the room was suddenly full of flowers, fruit and bottles of drink, proving that she did indeed have the power to grant wishes.

The nurses quickly discussed among themselves who should ask for the first wish.

Eventually the nursing assistant wished first. She said, "I wish I was on a beautiful tropical island, with single, handsome young men feeding me fruit and tending to my every need."

There was another puff of smoke and the nursing assistant disappeared.

The floor nurse was next to make her wish. She said, "I wish I was rich and retired, and spending my days in my own cosy, warm cabin at a ski resort with beautiful, well-groomed men feeding me wine and chocolates."

There was yet another puff of smoke and the floor nurse too was gone.

The lady asked the charge nurse, "Now, what is the final wish?"

The charge nurse said, "I want those two back on the floor at the end of the lunch break."
