What if I really had been granted a wish?
At first I considered the old standard “I wish for all the money I’ll ever need”, but I decided to take this seriously, just for fun. I’ve seen the movie Bedazzled (a comedy about a man named Elliot Richards who sells his soul for seven wishes) and even wrote a comedy novel called Be Careful What You Witch For! about a woman who wishes for a more interesting life and gets it.
Mayhem can happen if you mess around with something like this. “Fools rush in,” they say.
Then I thought, “What if I wish for more wishes?”
A flood of stories filled my head about characters who have been granted a wish and were told that’s not allowed.
But is that true?
Is there really a rule somewhere that says you can’t wish for more wishes? If so, says who? And, are they the boss of me?
I’ve been granted a wish and I want to spend it wisely. I don’t want to end up like Elliot Richards who asks to be the most sensitive man in the world and gets what he wishes for!
Given the opportunity, what would you wish for?
By the way, here’s you some disruptive dogs!
