>>>>>>> A husband and wife were out enjoying a round of golf about to tee off
>>>>>>> on the third hole which was lined by beautiful homes. The wife hit
>>>>>>> her shot and the ball began to slice. Her shot was headed directly
>>>>>>> at a very large plate glass window. Much to their surprise, the ball
>>>>>>> smashed through the window and shattered it into a million pieces.
>>>>>>> They felt compelled to see what damage was done and drove off to see
>>>>>>> what had happened.
>>>>>>> When they peeked inside the home, they could find no one there. The
>>>>>>> husband called out and no one answered. Upon further investigation,
>>>>>>> they saw a gentleman sitting on the couch with a turban on his head.
>>>>>>> The wife said, "Do you live here?"
>>>>>>> "No, someone just hit a ball through that window, knocked over the
>>>>>>> vase you see there, and freed me from that little bottle. I am so
>>>>>>> grateful", he answered.
>>>>>>> The wife, said, "Are you a genie?"
>>>>>>> "Oh why yes, I am. In fact, I am so grateful, I will grant you two
>>>>>>> wishes, the third I will keep for myself," the man replied.
>>>>>>> The husband and wife agreed on two wishes... one was for a scratch
>>>>>>> handicap for the husband, to which the wife readily agreed. The
>>>>>>> other was for an income of $1,000,000 per year forever. The genie
>>>>>>> nodded and said, "Done!" The genie now said, "For my wish I would
>>>>>>> like to have my way with your wife. I have not been with a woman for
>>>>>>> many years and afterall, I have made you a scratch golfer and
>>>>>>> millionaire." The husband and wife agreed.
>>>>>>> After the genie and wife finished, the genie asked the wife, "How
>>>>>>> long have you been married?"
>>>>>>> She replied, "Three years."
>>>>>>> The genie then asked, "How old is your husband?"
>>>>>>> To which she responded, "31 years old."
>>>>>>> The genie then asked, "How long has he believed in this genie stuff?"
