After watching the movie Cinderella, four-year-old Karen started using her pinwheel as a magic wand, pretending she was a fairy godmother.
“Make three wishes,” she told her mom, “and I’ll grant them.”
Her mom asked for world peace.
Karen swung her wand and proclaimed the request fulfilled.
Next, her mom wished for a cure for every ill child.
And with a sweep of the pinwheel, Karen delivered the wish.
The mother, with a glance down at her rather ample curves, made her third request, “I wish to have a trim figure again.”
The miniature fairy godmother waved her wand furiously.
“I’ll need more power for this!” she exclaimed.
