One Wish For Jamaican Woman

Standard

It’s Friday. It’s pay day. What more could a girl ask for? I totally can’t wait till 4:30 when I will exit the door of my office, never to see it again until Tuesday morning. I’ll be working in Montego Bay Sunday & Monday … I welcome the break from the office, the change of scenery and the long drive down.

Anyways, here’s a smiley to start the weekend off right.

A Jamaican woman was walking along the banks of Dunn’s River Falls when she stumbled upon a old empty bottle. She picked it up and rubbed it, and
lo-and-behold a Genie appeared.

She talked with him awhile then the Genie told her he would grant her ONE
wish.

She said she heard from a cousin that she would get three wishes if she ever found a Genie. The Genie said, “Nope, sorry three-wish genies nuh real, me is strictly a ONE-WISH Genie. So… what yuh want?” The woman didn’t hesitate.

She said, “I want peace in the Middle East. See this map, I want these
countries to stop fighting with each other and I want all the Arabs to love Jews and Americans and vice-versa. It will bring about world peace and harmony. ”

The Genie looked at the map and exclaimed, “Lawd Lady, A wah wrang wid yu? PLEASE BE REASONABLE! Dem countries yah a war fi how much thousands of years. Mi shut up inna dis bockle fi ’bout five hundred of dem dey years. Mi good but mi nuh dat good! Mi nuh know if mi can grant dis one. Do Lady, mek another wish!! Mi a beg yuh… Be reasonable.”

The woman thought for a minute and said, “Well, I’ve never been able to find the right Jamaican man… You know, one that is considerate and fun, likes to dance and helps with the cooking & house-cleaning, is great in bed and is FAITHFUL. That’s what I wish for… a good Jamaican man.”

The Genie let out a long sigh, shook his head and said, “Mek mi see di map again!!!!”

Have a great weekend everyone.

  1. CD, how come you jus’ stuck pon this faithfulness thing so? Anyway, plenty unfaithful women are around nowadays too…
    I heard this song on the radio on Friday morning as I drove in to work, I think its by Fantasia and some guy. The guy started out asing something along the lines of “Suppose I was to tell you I was unfaithful”, you know, and if she felt that she would prefer not ot know, and if he should keep it a secret or if she thought he should tell her and he was going on about how he hoped she could forgive him and all that. Then Fantasia started to sing her answer and do you know what it was? She started to tell the guy how “Suppose she told him that she had been unfaithful, and sabout how their four year old son wasn’t really his and how she made a mistake and she didn’t really love the guy so she told him that the child was his, yadda yadda…
    It was an interesting song, cuz that sh_te whould really burn, especially the thing about the child not being his, and I just thought that the song was a good er, uh, well, maybe indicator of how things are might be the best phrase to describe it. What do you think?

  2. CD, there are good and faithful Jamdown men. Apparently de Genie nuh know any!

    Nevertheless, nice joke. Enjoy the time away from the usual office…the change of scenery is always good. It does help us to appreciate what we have and sometimes take for granted.

  3. MB, It was just a coincidence I got this joke after my last post about faithfulness. There are many unfaithful women out there for real. I agree with your perspective. I still maintain though that women take it better than men do when they find out about infidelity. Most men that I know say they would break up with their woman if they found out she was unfaithful to them, even if it was just a kiss. Me, I think I would leave before I cheat, but that’s just me.

    Dr D, I’m sure there are faithful men in Jamaica … how many is the question. I’m actually posting this comment from the “new scene” for work … waan sleep though!

    LTTPOT, you know I only share the good ones!

  4. Hi CD, compi at work playing with me. I tried posting several times Friday but….. You would be surprised at the number of women who are having affairs. The numbers between men and women aren’t as far apart as we would like to think. Men tend to chat more about it. Women keep it hidden.
