A Divemaster’s wish…

Near a lake used by scuba divers was a dive shop. One day a man walked in to the shop carrying a cardboard box. He put the box on the counter and was greeted by an instructor. The instructor naturally asked what was in the box. The man didn't answer, but opened the box and took out a miniature grand piano, then a miniature piano stool, and finally, a little man less than a foot tall, who sat at the piano and started to play the most incredible music you had ever heard.

"He's fantastic!" said the instructor, "Where did you get him?"

"Well," said the customer, "I had been diving in the lake when I saw this frog swimming in the middle of lake all alone, at about 15 feet, and looking very fatigued. I took hold of the frog and ascended to the surface. The frog seemed very relieved, so I carried him to the shore.

"When I put him down – and you're not going to believe this bit", the man said, "the frog started to talk! He said he wasn't really a frog, but was an unfortunate genie turned into a frog by a wicked fairy. And because he had never learned to swim, he wasn't doing well as a frog." But the best part was that for saving his life he agreed to grant me a wish.

"Well, being the attentive dive buddy I am, I noticed the frog having some difficulty equalizing as we surfaced, and it must have affected his hearing, because I clearly told him my wish, – and that was how I got a 10 inch pianist!"
