Three Wishes Thread


Recommended Posts

I was just thinking about making three wishes, and I can come up so far only with two:


-Native Proficiency in English

what are your coveted dreams?

You know, you can acquire the latter with former. :)


Without giving it much thought:

- Financial security

- Immortality (at will)

- A safe world to enjoy the other two



Of course, this reminds me:


"An elderly man was sitting alone on a dark path, right? He wasn't certain of which direction to go, and he'd forgotten both where he was traveling to and who he was. He'd sat down for a moment to rest his weary legs, and suddenly looked up to see an elderly woman before him. She grinned toothlessly and with a cackle, spoke: 'Now your *third* wish. What will it be?'"


"'Third wish?' The man was baffled. 'How can it be a third wish if I haven't had a first and second wish?'"


"'You've had two wishes already,' the hag said, 'but your second wish was for me to return everything to the way it was before you had made your first wish. That's why you remember nothing; because everything is the way it was before you made any wishes.' She cackled at the poor berk. 'So it is that you have one wish left.'"


"'All right,' said the man, "I don't believe this, but there's no harm in wishing. I wish to know who I am.'"


"'Funny,' said the old woman as she granted his wish and disappeared forever. 'That was your first wish.'"
