As I was cleaning my house the other day, I found a green plastic fly swatter. Looking for a good place to keep it, I found a nail in the entryway to my prosperity area. "Ok," I thought, "Green is a good color for prosperity." I hung the fly swatter there.
A few days later, I had a few flies in my house. So, I took pity on them and told them that if they went to the door that I would let them outside. Well, three of them did and I felt good about myself.
Then, all of the sudden, there were 6 more flies all buzzing around the inside of my window. By now my compassion was wearing thin and I went for the fly swatter. Slap, Slap, Slap, and Slap times 3, they were all dead.
Where did they all come from!!? I checked the windows and doors trash cans etc... I found no clue. Then with a smile I realized the Universe was giggling. "OK, I get it." I thought , "Thanks for the flies, I guess I asked for them. No more please"
The moral of the story is be careful what you wish for, you might just get it.
