The Wishing Game

Posted: April 19, 2014 in Uncategorized

If you had one wish, what would it be?

Well, that’s a question a lot of people get asked, and I wonder if it occurs to them that there’s an answer that’s much better than any other. To us, it’s pretty obvious, and though it may be a little bit cheap, your answer to that question should always be, “I would wish for unlimited wishes.” Or, if that is too much, “I would wish for three wishes a day.”

Our mom plays a game at night sometimes to help her get to sleep. She pretends she has three wishes a day, and when I asked her what she wishes for, she said that she usually wishes for food. She wishes that if she was looking through a food magazine, she could just wish for a certain meal to appear on the table. Why does she do this? Because she doesn’t particularly enjoy planning meals and making them a reality every day. She’s apparently never wished for more wishes, though.

I’ve asked several people what their one wish would be, but not one of them has said, “I would wish for unlimited wishes.” I guess that wishing for unlimited wishes would be a little bit cheap. Oh well, though, if they asked the question, you’ve got to answer honestly!
