One day, a magic lamp washed on to the beach. They rubbed the lamp, and a genie appeared that granted each man a wish.
“I wish I was off this island and back with my family,” said the first man, and he disappeared.
“I also wish I was off this island and back home,” said the second man. He too disappeared.
The third man, looked around and feeling lonely, looked up to the genie, “I really kind of like this island. I have everything I want, but it is getting a little lonely, so I wish my two friends were back to keep me company.”
