<p>The title is a quote from ''The Monkey's Paw" by W. W. Jacobs.</p>
<p>A Genie asks Bob a wish. Bob tells the Genie what he wants.
Let's say Bob merely said, "Give me a million dollars."
Although Bob may get his wish granted, because Bob was not very accurate in his wish, in return the Genie might take something very valuable from Bob, like Bob's own or his intimate's death, as in this book. </p>
<p>Likewise, if you were to get three of your wishes granted,
(besides wishing for more wishes)
How would you ask for your wishes accurately so that the Genie wouldn't be able to bring any misfortunes to you in return?</p>
<p>This is just a question I had while reading the story. Questions accepted if you don't get what I'm saying! :)</p>
