Ah, Salaam and good evening to you worthy friend. Please, please, come closer…  Welcome to Agrabah, city of mystery, of enchantment, and the finest merchandise this side of the river Jordan—on sale today, come on down! Heh, heh. Look at this! Yes! Combination hookah and coffee maker… Oh wait, this isn’t Agrabah. It’s still the internet, it’s still a blog, and even though there’s a genie of sorts involved and java in Aladdin, this is not a Disney film, this is coffee talk!

Let’s play an old game… three wishes, and ixnay on wishing for more wishes! I’m not a high maintenance girl. I don’t really care about name brands and shiny things. Lately, I’ve been chanting my wishes like a mantra in hopes the universe would notice little ol’ me among the throngs. I knew my three wishes: Find a job, find a house, be happy. Unfortunately, much like my to-do lists, wishes are often crossed off when obtained, only to make room for whatever the next thing might be—cross off one, add two. I got the house, I got the job, and I’ll be damned… I’m happy. So what do I wish for now? hmmm… I’ve got some ideas.

What about you? What are your three wishes, right now. Not next week, not next year, but right now. What three things would make your world a shinier place if the universe provided? And remember… be careful what you wish for!

  • I don’t know about wishes, but I do know that is my all time favorite movie and I know every single word of it. “Watch out–they spit.”

    So I went to a small gathering of 100 of my closest relatives and one shit this weekend and asked this very question-no one came up with any fun answers-all were wishing for family, country, world the best etc. So I was thinking -all these relatives came from that little German/ Indian grandmother who said”Wish in one hand and shit in the other and you know which one will get full faster.” So there you go… I think she scared the….
    out of all of us. Me –I want a hot red convertible , a pontoon boat that only goes 5 miles an hour, and a fishing pole that baits itself.

    “Wish in one hand and shit in the other and you know which one will get full faster.” Hmmm… I’ve heard these words before… from my own late grandmother. ;)

    Three wishes huh?

    Hmm. World peace? Scratch that… that wish has to come with asterisks, time limits and clauses in the contract.

    Country and world the best… hmmm. Yeah… I don’t know. I think there’s a natural order to things that humans continually screw with so again… I’ll pass.

    I’d wish for…
    1. People to treat each other as they wish to be treated.
    2. Myself and my loved ones to forever have real, truthful, right-down-to-the-chewy-center happiness… whatever that means to them.
    3. McDonald’s to bring back the deep-fried apple and cherry pies… cause to be honest, I think America’s serious problems began after they stopped making them that way.

Thoughts? Tell me what you think...
