The Wife said: "What a wonderful thing it is to have three wishes! Let’s not be hasty. Let’s wait until morning before we make a single wish."

The Woodcutter said, "A wise idea. That way we will be able to think more clearly. But for now I’m as hungry as a bear. When’s supper?"

"Supper will be ready in one hour," said the Wife.
