I wish we could cut the grass right now, but it is raining (which is good in a way, as it keeps the pollen down)
Granted. You're thrown out of your house, given s scythe and and are not allowed to go in again before the grass is cut.
I wish I was twice as wise as I am.
Wish granted. You become as wise as the legendary figure king Solomon. But in your third age, you fall prey to the same "indignities" he did.
I wish for success in my future job, so it can outplay the foul play of my enemies.
