Tale Weaver #84 September 8: Juiced Genie (or be careful of what you wish for)

Strolling along the beach, you discover an interesting bottle. It’s one of those large beer varieties with the wire and porcelain “cork/cap.” Figuring you might find a message, without thinking, you pop open the top. But rather than a message, you get a messenger.

A rather inebriated genie (the bottle wasn’t completely empty when placed inside) and you are the first “your wish is my command[er]”

What happens when a not completely sober genie attempts their first assignment? How well are your wishes granted? Does the ending surprise, even you, the author?

So, take a flight of fancy on a magic carpet you weave with your tale of the Juiced Genie.
