If Wishes were Fishes....

I'd be fishing with dynamite ;)

Although I dunno if you'd say these were really wishes, maybe dreams, or daydreams. Basically you tell yourself "Wouldn't it be cool if..."

I could fly. Like that guy in Heroes.

My farts smelled like vanilla (or coconut, not sure which is better - oooh vanilla AND coconut). Then I'd probably fart more, and in public. People would be requesting farts. Awesome! Why don't we have EVERYONE's smell like vanilla, or individual scents. Your own personal brand ;)

I had a photographic memory. School woulda been such a breeze. actually it was a breeze anyway, but it would've been more so.

If mosquito's only sucked out pimples and not your blood. I'm telling you they could genetically engineer that. People would be throwing away the tabard and mosquito nets.

I've shown you mine - what are yours? ;)

Eeew @ squeezing pimples. Yes I like the idea of flavoured farts...I wouldn't be too worried if the boyf lifted the covers then! LOL!

Hmmm... good question...

Wouldn't it be cool if:

I could literally be a make it butterfly on the wall of some places and situations.

Vegetables like brussel sprouts, spinach and all the other gross ones were bad for you and instead of it being a question of: Have you had your 5 fruit and veg for the day, the new thing was: Have you had your 5 types of chocolates and crisps for the day?

I could click my fingers and the house would be spotless and in Be*Witched.

Money grew on trees, and you had the R10. R20. R50. R100 and R200 bushes.

There are some of mine :-)

Oooh...even better make it Euro's or Pound money tree!

I think mine would smell like rose. And if wishes were fishes I'd get seven extra hours a week to read, I'd write like John Fante, Nicholson Baker and Ingrid Jonker without even trying. I'd be able to teleport anywhere in the world in a blink, tell my Dad one more time that I love him and tell the guy I lost my virginity to that I was faking. Oh my word... just way way too many wishes.

Awesome blog. Really enjoyed visiting.

i'd have a pause button on the kid.

so i could put him down and go for a smoke if i needed to.

i'd have self-changing nappies.

and i'd like to be able to teleport. this traffic stuff is bullshit.

this blog post was great. i was thinking about it the other day, wanted to do a list of inventions that would be cool.

but you got there first - great minds think alike and all that.

I love the idea that each person would have a signature scent for their farts - too funny!

Hmm, yes if wishes were fishes I'd:

I could function without sleep or I could get an extra 4 hours each day.

I could press pause and catch up so that I don't cross off all those 'to dos' as several more get added to the list.

My writing would be fluid and creative without trying.

I could make all the beautiful clothes I see.

Blondie - I've decided I want a duplicator thing. Just point at something and create a duplicate, or ten. The possibilities are endless ;)

Frankly - Thank for stopping by. A coupla extra hours in the week WOULD be awesome :)

EMACT - NO smoking around the tyke hun :P Teleporting is good, but flying there is all about the trip.

Benny - Check out this list of real super powers here

I'd wish for teleporting superpower too - then my nightmare air travels would be over.

I've often wished for a ZAPPING power. To frazzle people (or pigeons) that irritate me.

ps. love this post's pic. It made me chuckle :-)

My farts smell like Rosedew and Honeysuckle anyway.

I wish I didn't have to work. I still would, but I wish I didn't have to.

I'd like to read minds.

I'd like to be able to morph. Into anything.

And I'm SO with Cheap Thrills on the teleporting!
