¡¡

A man and his wife were always wishing for luck. One night a fairy came to them and said, ¡°You may have three wishes.¡±

The next morning the woman went to a neighbor¡¯s house to get some bread. She saw a nice pudding there. When she came back, she said, ¡°I wish I had a pudding like that!¡± She did not think of the three wishes, but there was a pudding beside her.

¡°Silly!¡± cried the man. ¡°You have lost one of our wishes, and we only have a pudding. I wish it were on your nose!¡± At that moment, the pudding jumped up and landed on the woman¡¯s nose.

¡°Silly, yourself!¡± cried the woman. ¡°You have lost another wish. We have only one wish left.¡± ¡°What will it be?¡± asked the man. ¡°We must wish this pudding off,¡± said the woman. ¡°I can¡¯t have it on my nose.¡± So they wished it would go away, and away it went. They had had their three wishes, but they were no better than before.
