# A wish that fulfills 3 wishes together [closed]

This is a riddle , which has been solved before but is fun and interesting so sharing with all here :-

I lived in a family with my wife and my parents . Suddenly I found a magic lamp , where from rubbing it came a genie, and he said that I can ask only 1 wish .

I had no real wish I would want to get fulfilled. So before I asked any wish I went and asked my wife and my parents if they want some sort of wish to get fulfilled. Here are their wishes :-

$$(i)$$ My mother was blind . She wished to cure her blindness.

$$(ii)$$ My family never had any children . So my wife wished for a son .

$$(iii)$$ My father always wanted to be rich . So he wished for a bag of gold coins.

Now I am in a trouble . What wish should I ask to the genie so that I can make everyone happy with their needs, and everyone gets what they want?

Note :- You cannot use a wish to make it wish for more wishes . Or else this wouldn't have been a puzzle :) .

I am looking for a creative answer , that only fulfills only the 3 wishes given by my wife and my parents .

I wish for my mother to see my wife'son with a bag full of gold coins in his hands.

• Exactly the answer which I was looking for !! Aug 13, 2020 at 14:59
• The father gets a rich grandson, but he still doesn't have the bag of gold he asked for. Do we assume he just takes it from the kid? Aug 13, 2020 at 15:51
• @NuclearWang of course not, he exchanges it for a lollipop ;) Aug 14, 2020 at 7:42

Wish for

Every member of your immediate family to have their greatest desire come true.

• There's a better answer than that . But it isn't wrong . Aug 13, 2020 at 14:41

As a refinement to Pierre Schneegans's answer that includes your father's wish, you could wish:

You should wish for

infinite wishes!

or something of that sort...

Or even

for all your family's dreams to come true!

Or maybe (if you're feeling fun) ask for

two more genies!

• It says in the question you can only have 1 wish Aug 13, 2020 at 14:39
• @BeastlyGerbil -- But it doesn't say your one wish can't be to have multiple other wishes! Aug 13, 2020 at 14:41
• I think thats implied. You only have 1 so you cannot wish a second time. Sure you can wish for more wishes, but you wont be able to use them Aug 13, 2020 at 14:42
• @BeastlyGerbil -- Now that the question's been edited, I see; you're correct. Aug 13, 2020 at 14:43

Everybody knows that the first thing you should do when you find a genie lamp is to

wish for more wishes

which will allow you to wish for anything you want.

EDIT: Since you are only allowed to ask this genie for 1 wish, you should instead

wish for another magic lamp.

You could wish for

your wife to give birth to a successful optometrist (an eye doctor). That would cure your mother's blindness, give your wife a son, and make money for your father.

• Aah good answer with some twist . However in that case my son has to work hard enough to earn money for my father , if my son would be a mediocre , then it's tough to bring a bag of gold coins . Aug 14, 2020 at 4:40
