One Writer's Blog About Writing
1st. See Jimi play the Monterrey Pop Festival in 67, and jam with him backstage afterwards.2nd. Go back and see Blind Faith play at Hyde park in 1969.3rd. Truly grasp the ability to play the blues (Without selling my soul to the devil...)
1. live in France for a year.2. another book or two of poems published.3. everyone in my life is healthy and happy.Put #3 in the #1 position, just so I don't look like a selfish monster . . . and that's it.
OK, so if I am a fifth grader it would be the following:1 - That Jessie Wilson would like me back2 - That I could grow armpit hair3 - That I could eat out every mealIf I were granted three wishes now, they would be:1 - Unlimited money2 - Randi and I would be together every day until she turns 100 and then we would die peacefully at the exact same time3 - That I could eat out every meal
1. To get a milk shake with my McDonalds Happy Meal.2. That mom would buy me socks to match my shirt.3. A one year pass to classic skating.
1. candy2. the ability to go to any store I want and get candy for free3. the right to wish for more candy at any time for the rest of my life(it's amazing I wasn't overweight as a fifth grader, right?)
1. That I wouldn't have to play dodge ball during P.E.2. For 100% on my keyboarding test3. To be student of the month rewarded with free lunch with the principle and my picture hung up in Main Hall.(I was such a nerd)
I asked my 5th grade daughter:1. A cell phone, especially the flippy kind with a full keyboard so it is easier to text.2. $500. (I asked her if she thought that was a lot of money and she said, "duh")3. That her friends wouldn't get mad at her for dumb stuff.
Dede, how smart to ask a ten-year old! Who would have thought?I would have wanted Reed Wallace to adore me.Breasts.Money to buy Jantzen sweaters and Joyce shoes instead of knock-offs.
That I would get perfect vision and lose my glasses.That my crush would say hi to me.That school would be canceled for a day but we all still got to hang out with our friends at school.
Well, if you read my post, "The Ketchup Kid," about a little deviant behavior I had in the 5th grade, you might expect that I would wish for ketchup - on all three wishes.
Hmm....three wishes I would have made in fifth grade, huh? Okay:1. Transfer out of the Catholic school.2. Have thin thighs so I could roll my skirt like the popular girls.3. Move to England, get a horse and ride across rolling green fields.Never got 1 or 2. Got the horse, eventually, spent 2 weeks in England. Not bad stats.
ooo. I also would have wished for my period to start. (and it wouldn't have occurred to me the short-sighted nature of such a wish.)
Ann, you don’t know how many times this scenario went through my head when I was in 5th grade, and 6th grade, and…pretty much anytime that I have had a free moment to let my mind wander since. The only difference was what that genie was wearing and how hot she was, of course my genie was a girl (I’m a 5th grade boy). So here they are:1. Unlimited wishes, or the max she would give me.2. The longest slip-n-slide in the world.3. Football moves like Richard Daniels, of course.
