Do you believe in wishes? That they come true if you wished hard enough?

I visited this wishing tree the other day. People would write their wishes on a piece of paper attached by string to an orange and throw the entire package up into a giant tree. If the package stayed up in the tree, entangled in the branches, then the wish would come true.

I couldn’t think of any specific wish, the others were wishing they’d get a big year end bonus and stuff like that. Not that I don’t want a big bonus, it just didn’t seem to be the right thing to wish for at that moment. In the past I’d always wish for Clara to get better but now she’s gone … I merely wished for good health for family and friends.

That’s so lame. Like during beauty pageants where these nubile young things always wished for world peace. So clichéd. I’m so full of it.
