If you had one wish, what would it be?

    If you were given just one wish that would come true, what would it be? What one thing do you want more than anything?

    No fair wishing for more wishes, or that all of your wishes be granted. You have ONE wish.

    My wish would be that my daughter will always be happy in whatever she chooses.

    I wish that, at the end of my life, I will have left the world in the better state than when I entered it.

    I wish for the elimination of violence (physical, sexual, emotional, etc etc) and violent people, and the triumph of niceness and nice people.

    I wish for fear and worry to be abolished.

    I suppose I should learn how to spell first, but I can't be bothered with such trivialities.

    maybe you should wish you could spell :wink:? What genre would you like to best-sell in?

    I would like to ammend my wish please.

    It doesn't matter.
    I have different ideas that I suppose could be classified in different genres.
    My latest project crosses a few lines...
    It is a series of novels with some elements of fantasy, philosophy, social commentary, religion and a few other things thrown in there.

    I wish that I could just read people's minds and know what they were thinking while they were thinking it- the truth. Especially in times where i'm having a fight with one of my close friends (yes, it's happening now) and they just expect me to know these things without communicating with me. It's frustrating to say the least..

    this would be helpful with girls

    sorry to hear you are fighting with your close friend tho :(

    mind reading is pretty cool thing to wish for...us poor guys never understand what women think,
  17. Feb 16, 2004 #16

    It'd be helpful with the boys too believe me! I can just hear all the girls thinking, so that's why he didn't call me and said he would!! LoL :wink:
    Yeh, well what can you do..? (Except sit here and wish I could read minds...) But seriously, I'm sure they just assume I know exactly how they're feeling and what they're thinking, and if i don't that makes me an even WORSE friend.. ah well. General discussion, not counselling, right? LoL
  18. Feb 16, 2004 #17
    Then ask us?! LoL. That's one of the things I love most about my boyfriend, he'll randomly ask "What are you thinking, baby?" and it catches me off guard so I can't even think of something fast enough to make up. I end up telling him what it was. No joke, if you want to know, just ask. Straight out. It's the best way

    lol... yeah we [guys] are pretty stupid from time to time, hell half the time i wish i could mind read my own thoughts cause i usually dont' know what i am thinking

    anyway... yeah a lot of the time egos drive fights and assumptions are at an all time high and always sucks when that happens, i think everyone on this forum can relate and despite this being general discussion i doubt counseling is ruled out.
