Big Mr. Little, Part 2

Me
Making wishes come true! You’re kind of an evil Aladin, aren’t you?
Grogan
Whatever. But, hey, what time is it doctor? 
Me
One. 
Grogan
I can’t just sit here. 
Me
No, no, you need help, and you’re my responsibility! 
Grogan
What’s the matter with me?
Me
It seems you can perform miracles by making wishes come true! I’m somewhat convinced of that. But why can’t your wishes come true on positive thoughts? 
Grogan
I don’t understand you.
Me
Just as you can kill people and cause accidents, why can’t you do good with your good wishes coming true? 
Grogan
Good? 
Me
Yes, good! Heal the ill, give eyesight to the blind! But if it comes to killing, kill only evil ones who do mass murder and who therefore should be killed.
Grogan
That’s right! Maybe I could do that!
Me
Destroy a murderous tyrant by just saying so.     
Grogan
But how would we know if I did it? 
Me
I’ll show you! Come with me.
Grogan
Where? 
Me
Out to the street. Come on Grogan. Maybe you’ll start making history in a few minutes.
Grogan
Where?
Me
Over on the corner. Just after 1 p.m. the Daily News is loaded into the vending machines by a sight-impaired man.
Grogan
Blind?
Me
Only partially. But you are going to wish he can see with perfect vision. OK?
Grogan
Sure, I’ll try.
Tommy
Hey there Doc! 
Me
Hello Tommy. How have you been?
Tommy
I can’t complain. How’ve you been?
Me
Fine, thanks. Grogan wish it.
Grogan
I wish he could see perfectly.
Me
We were just about to buy a paper. What’s new?
Tommy
Nothing much. I gotta go, Doc, the driver doesn’t like to get behind. See ya next week for my appointment!
Me
See you then, my friend.
Grogan
What does it mean?
Me
It means nothing happened to help Tommy, and it means whatever good you wish for doesn’t happen. But things you think of that are evil, those things come true.

Look for Part 3!
