I've been trying all day to remember the rest of that saying, but the only "wish" saying I can remember is the one that goes "wish in one hand and spit in the other and see which one fills up faster", or something like that. "I wish" is a favorite saying at my house. It varies from "Honey, I wish I had a new truck" to "Mom, I wish I didn't have to do the dishes" to "Mommy, I wish I had a puppy". (No comments about that Alona!) Here are some of my wishes that don't get aired nearly as much as the above.
-I wish for world peace. Really! I know it's hokey and it's something I ask for every Christmas. I haven't gotten it yet, so I'll just keep on asking.
-I wish that kids didn't get sick. Not ear infection, cough and cold stuff. I'm talking seriously debilitating and deadly stuff.
-I wish I could take a few classes at USC, just to learn something new. Like some more history classes or learning to speak Russian.
-I wish book publishers would hurry up with the books I want to read. Summer is looking really good but it just is SOOO long from now! I'm going to be so broke from June all the way through September.
-I wish I could find the "right" pair of black shoes. Everything is too high, too pointy, too expensive.
-I wish I was more anxiously engaged in something good. I'm trying but I'm lazy at the core level.
-I wish Kiersten would just wash the dishes. She says we gave her that chore because we hate washing dishes. How right she is.
-I wish Mike's parents lived closer. Better yet, the Star Trek teleporter was a functioning piece of equipment, we could just hop over when we wanted to.
-I wish every woman could have a husband as wonderful as mine. Even though sometimes I get angry with him, he's a good man.
One last one,
I wish health, happiness and love to all who read my words. What are some of y'all's wishes?
