A colleague told me that if he had a genie in a bottle, his first wish would be to have infinite wishes; his second wish would be for all his wishes to come true; and his third wish would be that all the wishes would be free of ambiguity such that the intent would be fully clear–nice!
But this is no genie…this is an umbrella in a bottle.
Twist the top (handle) and pull it from the bottle (case) and whoola, an umbrella.
Cute design, but when I tried to open the umbrella, it felt functionally, like a piece of garbage (IMHO).
Oh genie, how about an umbrella that actually works and who cares if it’s in a bottle or not. 😉
