After a ship sank in the ocean, three men ended up stranded in a lifeboat. They floated around for days without food or water. One afternoon a bottle floated up to the boat. The men grabbed the bottle and when they pulled the cork out of the bottle, a genie appeared.
‘I’ll grant each of you a single wish,’ said the genie.
‘I wish I was home,’ said the first man. Then, poof! he disappeared.
‘I wish I was home, too,’ said the second man. Poof! He disappeared too.
The third man looked around. ‘Gee, I’m kind of lonely,’ he said. ‘I wish my friends were here with me.’
