Everything that you wish for may not be something that you need.
The God Dionysus was searching for his teacher, and found by King Midas' men. He was brought to the King.
The King offered the God hospitality for 10 days before returning him to the place they found him. The God told the King that he would grant him one wish...
You may stay for 10 days.
...That wish was to be able to turn everything he touched into gold.
The King soon realized that his power was a blessing and a curse. When he hugged his daughter she turned to gold, and when he tried to eat, the food he touched turned to gold. So he prayed to Dionysus.
The God told him to go rinse himself and anything that he touched in the River of Pactolus. Once he did so and things were put back to normal, the King never accepted riches that wre offered to him.
