Granted. However, believing the genie would corrupt your wish by causing you to flunk all your other courses, you stop going to them, instead spending your time doing your new favorite sports: web skiing, skate shooting, and dumpster diving. A book publisher gives you an advance to write a book about these new sports, and knowing you have such good grades in English, you accept.
However, your actual real-life prose is dreadful. The book is a flop, you have to give back the advance that you've already spent, which leads you into bankruptcy. Somebody else writes a book about you and makes a fortune (of which you get none).
Oh, and you end up flunking your other courses anyway.
I wish for an actual correct horse battery staple.
