Wishful Thinking

May 6, 2009

I’m not above a little wishful thinking, and so, a little wish hangs above me.


The card reads, “make a wish, close your eyes, and pull,” and it swings from the kitchen ceiling, just out of reach. This affords a moment of sober second thought. Is this a true emergency? One that really, really needs a wish? Really?

By the time you pull a chair over, climb up, untie the string, recruit someone to pull the other half, you’ve had time to consider whether a situation can only be settled with a wishbone, or if perhaps patience, cooling off, an overdue telephone call, or a good sleep might suffice.
