Granted, but all they do is wish for more wishes.

I wish I could put my dog's brain in the body of a crocodile...

Nymtoc
02-09-2019, 02:21 AM
Granted. But what used to be a playful nip on your leg is now like a scene from a horror movie. :e2chain:

I wish I could travel anywhere in the world without paying.

NathanBrazil
02-11-2019, 02:18 AM
You can but you've been transformed into an airplane wheel.

I wish I could move ridiculously heavy objects without straining my back.

ChloeRose
02-11-2019, 05:27 AM
....your wish is granted, but the heavy items must be ridiculous, such as an ice cream truck on top of an elephant.

I wish I were athletic enough to do any sport I wanted...

Koulentis
02-13-2019, 10:46 AM
Granted! But your wish seems odd considering the only sport you want to do is cup-stacking.

I wish I owned an ice cream truck.

ChloeRose
02-15-2019, 06:39 PM
....your wish is granted, but given that you live in Norway I'm not sure how much good it's going to do you.

I wish that I could go back to college and earn a higher degree without paying for it.

Nymtoc
02-15-2019, 09:09 PM
Granted. You are hereby granted a scholarship to Trump University, where you...oh, hell, the Feds shut it down.

I wish I had a butler robot.

M.S. Wiggins
02-17-2019, 01:43 AM
Granted. Your butlernot just welcomed the POTUS into your home. Have fun entertaining him.

I wish I was a fly on Nymtoc’s wall.

Nymtoc
02-17-2019, 07:05 AM
Granted. But be aware that Nymtoc won first prize at the annual Fly-Swatting Contest last year. :snoopy:

I wish I could visit ancient Rome for a day.

Koulentis
02-17-2019, 07:27 AM
Granted! The twelve-feet tall, three-hundred pound housefly known as ‘Rome’ is waiting for you at the dumpster behind your local supermarket. Rome has been meaning to talk to about your Fly-Swatting habits and how you’ve been telling everyone he’s ancient. He’s really looking forward to your visit.

I wish Nymtoc had a huge can of Raid Bug Spray.

Azdaphel
02-18-2019, 11:25 PM
Granted, but you know what? It's empty.

I wish to not be Nymtoc.

Nymtoc
02-19-2019, 12:54 AM
Granted. You are not now and never have been and never will be Nymtoc. (That was an easy one! :banana:)

I wish I could write a novel in one day.

M.S. Wiggins
02-20-2019, 02:54 AM
Granted, but it's a Groundhog-Day style granting. (You have to get it write/right first before you can move on Nymtoc-Murray.) ;)

Wish I could edit a novel in one day.

ChloeRose
02-22-2019, 08:23 AM
Granted, but it will be Worlds of Power: Metal Gear described as possibly the worst book ever written: review "This must have been a secret plot by ..to destroy any interest in reading.. so bad it might cause your brain to forget how to read in self-defense."

I wish I could fly to Paris in an hour to dine at the Eiffel Tower Restaurant during the springtime.

Nerdilydone
02-23-2019, 11:45 PM
Okay, but given that your location is Pennsylvania, the only way you could make it to Paris in an hour is by traveling with an SR-71, a retired military vehicle. You are arrested immediately after lunch for theft and parking the SR-71 in the middle of Paris' busiest road.

I wish to walk in lollipop land.

Koulentis
02-27-2019, 11:23 AM
Granted! You are a eight-inch tall pink ball of cuteness known as Kirby. Look out for the tanks. Good luck with the boss fight on stage 6.

I wish I had an Atari 2600.

ChloeRose
02-27-2019, 07:10 PM
Granted! But in order to play the Atari 2600 you'll have to dress in clothes fashionable at the time which include parachute pants, a skinny neck tie, a Hawaiian shirt and puff your hair up as high as it will go with gel and hairspray.

I wish I could wake up and find my old, rusty, gas guzzling, bench seat, 2 door, V8, 1969 Chevy Nova coupe, waiting for me in the driveway.

Azdaphel
02-27-2019, 09:47 PM
Granted. But be careful not stomping on it, it's just a scale model. The original was so rusty, it fell apart.

I wish I could replay games I have played like it was the first time.

CDSinex
03-02-2019, 03:46 AM
Granted: From now on you play every game like it was the first time. Everything you learned the last, first time is erased from from your memory. In a Sisyphean nightmare you repeat the same mistakes, and the game quickly ends in the same abrupt manner.

I wish I would spend more time writing and not be so easily distracted.

Nightfly
03-02-2019, 07:31 AM
Granted: You are now alone on a small island. You know the satellite (your only chance) passes overhead... right around high tide. You spend all day every day writing....HELP.

I wish I had the power. All the power.

Koulentis
03-02-2019, 10:49 AM
Granted! You're Snap! Unfortunately that means your life is also "getting kinda hectic". (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_BRv9wGf5pk).

I wish I had a microphone.

Crispin
03-02-2019, 11:02 AM
Granted! You are now the cord to which it's attached. Hope no one trips!

I wish I could see across the entire universe.

Nightfly
03-06-2019, 05:56 AM
Granted. But the trade off is you're farsighted. Which for you now means if you want to read a menu you'll need arms that reach to the moon. (try the burger. it's good and before long it'll cost a fortune in taxes)

Hmm. I wish I had the best burger in the world.

Norman Mjadwesch
03-07-2019, 07:16 AM
Granted, but it is so damned good looking that you are unable to ruin it by eating it.

I wish I had a pet hippopotamus with five legs.

ChloeRose
03-07-2019, 04:46 PM
Your wish is granted, but he'll make a raucous noise, trample your backgarden, and you'll need an industrial strength leash to walk around the neighborhood while people stare at you anywhere you go (did I mention you'll have to clean up after him?)

I wish I owned a bakery and could eat all of the cookies, brownies and cakes I wanted without ever gaining weight....

Kenneth Keltarin
03-07-2019, 08:14 PM
Granted. You are a two-dimensional cartoon character capable of swallowing anything though you'll never make it to that third dimension. Watch out for stiff breezes and a high-pitched Christopher Lloyd.

I wish all this snow would stop falling, it's nearly spring...

Nymtoc
03-08-2019, 12:24 AM
Granted. The snow has stopped falling, and the temperature has risen to 136 degrees F. (Global warming. :snoopy:)

I wish I didn't have a dental appointment this afternoon.

Norman Mjadwesch
03-08-2019, 03:40 AM
Granted. You are in a morgue awaiting autopsy.

I wish I had milk to put on my cereal.

Koulentis
03-08-2019, 09:20 AM
Granted! Your cereal bowl is full of mushroom milk fresh squeezed... er, squashed... juiced from the fungus. Yum!

I wish I had a box of Cap'n Crunch to go with my bowl of cow milk.

Norman Mjadwesch
03-08-2019, 05:35 PM
Granted. Your Cap'n Crunch is full of weevils and the cows milk has curdled. Enjoy the biodiversity!

I wish people would stop being silly with their wish solutions on this thread.

ChloeRose
03-08-2019, 06:46 PM
Granted. From now on when you attempt to access this site will be redirected to "Mathematics Stack Exchange" with forum questions such as:
"If E is splitting field of f(x) and we denote degree of fi(x) by di , then Gal(E/F)≤Sd1×Sd2×Sd3× ... ×Sdn (Gal(E/F) is Galois group of f(x) and Sn is permutation group of n)
My Question: Is this collect?"
... you will fine nothing of silly amusement from here to the foreseeable future. Enjoy!!

I wish that I had a personal chef to here create perfectly prepared, healthy and delicious meals 24 hours a day.

Norman Mjadwesch
03-09-2019, 01:57 AM
Granted. Meals will be prepared around the clock and you will not be allowed to leave the table until each of them has been eaten. Try not to explode.

I wish that I did not enjoy mathematics so much as to be sorely tempted by the previous solution.

Nightfly
03-09-2019, 06:57 AM
Granted! But now you are - tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered
What's been going on
Now that you have gone
There's no other

i guess maybe i wish for more confidence or something, i don't know, is that a dumb wish?

Norman Mjadwesch
03-09-2019, 11:11 AM
Granted! You are now an incredibly confident and wishful person whose all-knowing personality, grass-roots connection to the voters, and no-nonsense approach to democracy has seen you elected to the US presidency.

I wish I wasn't being sarcastic.

Azdaphel
03-09-2019, 06:14 PM
Granted! You told the truth and telling it is not sarcastic. In fact, it hurts after the person you were talking to punch you in the stomach.

I wish I knew the answer to life, the universe and everything else.

Norman Mjadwesch
03-10-2019, 12:34 AM
Granted. You are now Douglas Adams but because of your superior intellect the only way to communicate with humanity is to write books that contain life's answers, yet they are treated by readers largely as entertainment.

I wish I had simply written 42.

Nightfly
03-10-2019, 12:35 AM
Granted! You have all the answers. Unfortunately the ONLY question anyone ever asks you for the rest of your life is - Hey did you get a haircut or something?

I wish I had more focus.

Damn it! Missed it by one minute. Ignore my wish Genie. Next time.

Nightfly
03-11-2019, 03:59 AM
Granted. You are propelled back in time and when the fateful moment arrives this time your intuition takes over and you simply write.......42. The questionnaire you were filling out asked for your IQ.

I wish I was better at making decisions. No, more focus. No, the first thing - decisions.....uh..yeah decisions.

ChloeRose
03-11-2019, 04:48 AM
Granted. You now have the focus and decision making abilities of a brain surgeon, unfortunately with no aptitude towards math, and being squeamish around blood, all that ability amounts to nawt.

I wish I had the skills of a professional contractor and the energy needed to finish up the the projects I have waiting for me.....

Norman Mjadwesch
03-11-2019, 06:40 AM
Granted! The contract you have just completed was a hit on Slick Jimmy and now you've just heard that his cousins are looking for you.

I wish I could do the things I used to be able to do without worrying about the consequences.

ChloeRose
03-11-2019, 07:52 AM
Granted. You have been transported back to a state of infancy before you knew what consequences were. You may now grab people's hair, scream during dinner, throw food, wear a diaper (or not) and fall down at will, and you won't care at all, but you're (soon to be ex-) friends might.

I wish I had the time and ability to read every great work of literature, history and science.

Norman Mjadwesch
03-11-2019, 08:30 AM
Granted! You have attained a level of narcissism that has you convinced that only your writing and research has any worth, and so your days are filled admiring your own work and denigrating everything else.

I wish I didn't have to go to work this afternoon.

ChloeRose
03-11-2019, 04:43 PM
Granted. You can now spend the day looking at the want ads for a job since you didn't show up for the one you had.

I wish I didn't have phone conference to prepare for and it could be postponed until tomorrow.

Norman Mjadwesch
03-12-2019, 02:01 AM
Granted! You have received a promotion and now everything you find onerous can be delegated to one of your minions.

I wish that we lived in a world where experts were listened to by policy makers, and where education was more important than popularity.

Nymtoc
03-12-2019, 02:39 AM
Granted. You have been transported to the fifth planet circling Star 2767 in the Andromeda Galaxy, a very attractive planet. Experts are listened to by policy makers there, and education is much more important than popularity. Unfortunately, the temperature is rather high (1,500 degree Celsius, on the average), but 2767's citizens have gotten used to it--and with luck, maybe you will, too.

I wish I had an assistant to do all the tedious things in life.

ChloeRose
03-12-2019, 04:56 AM
Granted. However, your assistant is not adept at independent decision making and will ask you on a continuous basis how you want something done. This takes up all free time you thought you'd find by having an assistant, so please keep your cell phone turned on.

I wish could be in two places at the same time so I could both get my work done and go out for lunch.

Norman Mjadwesch
03-12-2019, 05:34 AM
Granted! You are now an amoeba and have split in two. Unfortunately, you are no longer able to have thoughts, and therefore do not regret that your wish could have been solved by having a job as a food taster. You just had to insist on being in two places at once!

I wish my avatar looked like a Rorschach ink blot test.

Nightfly
03-12-2019, 05:58 AM
Granted. You go out for lunch to a seedy, dimly lit place called El Taco Disgusto which is also the last stop on your route with your roach spraying enterprise.

What about the "two places at the same time," you ask? Easy now, I didn't forget...The place doubles as a meth lab.


I wish I looked better in a hat.

Nightfly
03-12-2019, 05:59 AM
Ah for Christs sakes! (Genie I wish I could think faster) Next time Genie. Next time.

Gotta admit I like the dog's a little better.

ChloeRose
03-12-2019, 04:44 PM
It's all good.....but so frustrating when we get beaten to the punch by one of our fellow writers! lol

Granted, but the hat you look good in happens to be a tricorn, triangular hat, that George Washington wore in the 1800's. So you'll stand out a little bit when you wear it to work, on a date, or riding the subway.

I wish I could go to NY to see a Broadway show while driven around by limousine.

Nightfly
03-13-2019, 05:41 AM
Granted. You know as a Genie I take my business seriously - I have little time or patience for any form of "entertainment." And musicals, well I must admit I find them pretty insufferable. But.......
OMG! Watching those furry Cats trying to sing and dance and stay in character while running in front of a limo has gotta be the funniest goddamn thing I've ever seen! Oh syntax is the best!

I wish I could move things with my mind.

Koulentis
03-13-2019, 11:24 AM
Granted! You can now move Thing 1 and Thing 2 with your mind. Activate the power by standing nose-to-nose with your target and staring at them. In case you don’t have any Dr. Seuss characters in your neighborhood, it’ll also work on people you don’t know. Just go up to a stranger, stand nose-to-nose and stare. Trust Genie. They’ll move.

I wish I had a talking fish.

ChloeRose
03-13-2019, 05:56 PM
Granted. You now have a fish that never stops talking. From the minute you walk in the door, while you sleep, and before you leave, it will talk, talk, talk. It has opinions on everything you're doing and rambles on about the most boring topics you can possibly think of. A great addition to your home. Enjoy!

I wish I had an encyclopedic brain, photographic memory and could speed read.

Nerdilydone
03-13-2019, 08:13 PM
Well, you can, but it doesn't last long. Turns out if you eat all the product, nobody will give you money to keep your bakery afloat.

I wish that Space Quest 7 would come out.

NathanBrazil
03-13-2019, 09:56 PM
It does, but they are forced to release early before working out all the kinks. The worst is their new connectors. One plugs in through your nose but it sucks out your back teeth and Sharpei slides down the back of your throat.

I wish for packages to announce themselves when they are deposited at my doorstep.

ChloeRose
03-13-2019, 11:56 PM
Granted. You now have a package alert system enabled with the scream of the former comedian Sam Kinison that will not stop until you've retrieved said package into your home.(If you've not heard of him be sure to look him up....classic). You'll never miss a delivery again...and neither will any of your neighbors.

I wish I had a drone to go to the grocery store for me when I'm out of something.

NathanBrazil
03-14-2019, 01:35 AM
*That sounds very like a howler, but I approve.*

I like how you asked for everything but actually getting the thing you actually need. Well it did everything you said ... up to that point, and then ... well no one was harmed, but there is now a big ugly black hole where the store the used to be. Oh, and also drones are notoriously lazy, so it took your car, ran into a mailbox, ate all of the letters, and then went to the store.

I wish I had a Dalai Lama string pulling doll that said the most inappropriate things at the wrong time and has about a million different sayings.

Nightfly
03-17-2019, 06:32 AM
Granted! Let's try this thing out.

Pull.............Happiness is found inside. And remember don't touch the girls or they'll throw you right out on your ass.
Pull.............Love is right here if you know where to look. ATM on the left, champagne room in the back.
Pull.............All of life is Beauty. Whoa look at those! See, see perfect example.


I wish I was buds the Dalai Lama

ChloeRose
03-17-2019, 11:34 PM
Granted! Since you haven't made friends with the current Dalai Lama on facebook, instagram, followed him on twitter, watched his youtube videos, or listened to his podcasts, you're obviously a traditionalist. So, enjoy your transport back in time to hang out with #1 as a goat herder in 1398 Tibet with your new BFF!

I wish I could see the Aurora Borealis without having to go to Iceland in the dark of winter and feel I was freezing to death.

Nightfly
03-18-2019, 10:26 PM
Granted! They're coming to your living room. And remember - you asked for this.

https://youtu.be/NYlgbbAgCxQ (http://youtu.be/NYlgbbAgCxQ) (well, the link isn't working. If you're interested go to youtube and search Sarkikos)

I wish I could run like I used to.

Norman Mjadwesch
03-19-2019, 10:05 AM
Granted! You are once more a baby and you are ejecting volumes of diarrhea that make the most loving parents retch. The secret ingredients are milk, fruit juice and coke.

I wish I loved the things I hate

ChloeRose
03-21-2019, 04:21 AM
Granted. It is now opposite day and you're the inverted image of the person that you were. By loving all the things you hate, the flip side is that you will have to hate all the things you loved before your wish was granted. Plus those who are important to you will think you've completely lost the plot, but you have your wish!

I wish I could swim all of the ocean without a submarine and observe all of the crazy fish that live at the very bottom of the deep blue sea (bear in mind I get sea sick)....

Nightfly
03-21-2019, 05:12 AM
Granted! Dive in and head for the bottom. You may now observe all those crazy fish - most of them from below. You are a Lump Fish. Do not swim near reflective surfaces. Trust me.

I wish I could step away from political news like I keep telling myself.

ChloeRose
03-22-2019, 05:42 AM
Granted. Like so many of us yearn to, you will be removed from watching politics and instead be devoted to another kind of drama....the soap opera channel. Your head will now be reeling wondering whose baby it is, will the perfect couple ever make up and get married, and what rich older man will swoop in and save the day. When the election finally rolls around you'll have no clue and forget to vote altogether. The world will now end up with President ........? (sometimes better not to know).

I wish that I could backpack across Europe all summer (bear in mind I'm too old to now).

Azdaphel
03-22-2019, 02:56 PM
Granted! But you will do it as a turtle. The big ones can live very old and still be in shape to travel. However, it will take a very long time to go from one place to another.

I wish I knew everything.

Norman Mjadwesch
03-22-2019, 03:43 PM
Granted. Unfortunately no one else is able to comprehend your gems of wisdom are you are routinely ignored (the rest of the time you are treated like a crank).

I wish that I was able to keep all of my promises.

Nymtoc
03-22-2019, 10:28 PM
Granted. Of course, that includes the time your told your neighbor, "If you don't stop sweeping your leaves on my driveway, I swear I'll kill you!" Having kept that promise, you are spending the rest of your life in prison.

I wish I felt as full of energy as when I was 17.

M.S. Wiggins
03-23-2019, 01:38 AM
Granted, contractually. Fifty percent of seventeenth-year accrued energy owed to Genie, grantor-in-chief, twenty-five percent to Cosmic Time Reversal Department (CTRD), and fifteen percent to wholesale energy distributors. Your takeaway is ten percent royalties for Energy: Year 17. Have fun haggling with the ERS (Energy Revenue Service) over wish deductions!

I wish(ed) for more indictments.

Nightfly
03-24-2019, 10:06 PM
Granted. It's as bad as you expected and isn't that better than having to re-evaluate your bias and see the good in those you hate?

I wish I could roar with the ferocity and volume of a lion and silence all these barking dogs.

Nymtoc
03-24-2019, 10:15 PM
Granted. But your roaring has enraged your neighbors, and you have been arrested for disturbing the peace.

I wish I could remember every word of everything I ever read.

ChloeRose
03-24-2019, 11:57 PM
Granted. You now have the mind of a dictionary and can recall at will every word you have ever read. However, you have also lost the ability to use these words in any meaningful or creative way. When anyone needs to know the spelling or definition of a word they're in luck to have you there, but we'd miss you here as the wit and wisdom you exhibit would no longer be possible.

I wish watching golf weren't so boring.

Nightfly
03-25-2019, 02:16 AM
Granted.

"And welcome viewers to the first annual Russian Roulettte Open! Where one in ten balls is an acme explosive device. You're up first Tiger. Please choose your first ball out of the Bucket of Destiny."

I wish I could run along the tree tops like those Chinese people in that movie with the swords and the fighting and the poison and the trees.

Saffron
03-25-2019, 01:34 PM
Granted.

But you now live in the desert.

I wish I could sing beautifully.

Norman Mjadwesch
03-26-2019, 03:40 AM
Granted. Unfortunately this is the 21st century and beautiful singing is no longer popular, having been replaced by forms of entertainment that are called music but resemble nothing of the sort.

I wish reality TV was banned and replaced with something that was educational, entertaining and socially responsible.

Kinsman
03-26-2019, 04:23 AM
Granted. All TV is banned. Here's your 550k-piece puzzle depicting the instructions on how to build a solar generator.

I wish The Media would simply report the news without "spin" or agenda.

Nymtoc
03-26-2019, 07:14 AM
Granted. Here are some no-spin examples from today's news:

The sun rose in the east.
A hen laid an egg.
There were clouds in the sky.
Grass grew.

I wish I could go back in time and meet Socrates.

Azdaphel
03-26-2019, 03:38 PM
Granted! But you arrive just the day of his birth. Have patience my friend, you may live long enough to talk to him.

I wish I could launch laser beam with my eyes.

ChloeRose
03-27-2019, 03:49 AM
Granted. You can now launch laser beams from your eyes, unfortunately you have no control over when this happens which gets to be rather inconvenient. You can no longer drive for fear of accidents so you have to stay home. But watching TV becomes impossible. Any action scenes and you blow the whole thing up. Not to mention having a meal. Don't look down or the cooking term 'carmalized' will be applicable from eggs to pasta and everything in between. Doesn't do much for your social life either, naturally.

I wish I had a goat that knew how to write long, personal letters, as well as issuing goat-related commentary on current events in the local paper.

Nightfly
03-27-2019, 04:02 AM
Granted. He knows how to do all of this. It just comes to him naturally. But... he's never even uttered a word in your presence. He flops on the couch with some sweet bud and his only attempt at even basic communication is when he raises a hand (hoof) to you (and maybe a glare) when he can't hear the tv.

I wish I could do those pull ups.

ChloeRose
03-28-2019, 05:01 AM
Granted. You are now able to infinite numbers of pull ups, however to do so your biceps will become ginormous. Start shopping for some roll-up shirts, a corn cob pipe, get a tattoo, and stock up on many cans of spinach. Unfortunately, it will reduce your dating pool quite a bit and creates some fierce opposition.

I wish I liked skiing and could do so without getting all wet and freezing cold.

Azdaphel
03-28-2019, 06:18 PM
Granted! But you also have been transported in a far future when a climatic change has made snow a legend of times past.

I wish I could wish things into being.

Nightfly
03-28-2019, 09:29 PM
Granted. But wait don't you do it. Don't you dare think of the Stay Puft marshmallow man. Don't you do it!

I wish I could clear my head.

Nymtoc
03-28-2019, 09:37 PM
Granted. In a ground-breaking new surgery, your brain has been removed.

I wish I had a Ferris wheel.

ChloeRose
03-29-2019, 12:54 AM
Granted. You now have your own Ferris Wheel...and we'll throw in some tiny instruments to boot. For your flea circus. In the 1820s an Italian named Louis Bertolotto created an “extraordinary exhibition of industrious fleas". Think of all the fun you'll have. Just carefully wrap a thin gold wire around your flea's necks and they are surprisingly strong and trainable. They'll even rotate the Ferris Wheel for you. Make an impression you will.

I wish I had my own old fashioned ice cream shop that served all of the flavors that were ever made.

Nymtoc
04-03-2019, 03:16 AM
Granted. Your shop serves all 3,279 flavors of ice cream that have ever been made.They include lobster, bourbon & cornflake. ghost pepper, crocodile egg, shark's fin & squid, cactus, octopus, and raw horse flesh*. Few people come into your shop. Worse, the Friends of the Octopus has joined with Make the World Safe for Crocodiles to picket you, and law enforcement is not far behind. Your trial begins tomorrow morning.

*These are real ice cream flavors!

I wish I could visit Saturn.

Azdaphel
04-03-2019, 04:59 PM
Granted. You now stand before the god of time, the one named Chronos in Greek mythology, the lord of the Titans. Sorry, what? Did you mean the planet? My apologies but I don't have time to repair my mistake, however, Saturn has a great collection of clocks and watches he is very proud of, and he has not seen many people since a very long time.

I wish I could visit Pluton.

Nymtoc
04-03-2019, 09:09 PM
Granted. Pluto, the god of the Underworld, is very happy to see you. You will dwell in the land of the dead forever. (By the way, he will imprison you in a type of igneous rock called pluton, which will prevent you from moving more than a millimeter a century.)

I wish I had a grandfather clock.

ChloeRose
04-04-2019, 03:00 AM
Granted. You are now the proud owner of a Grandfather clock and, my, do you have good taste. The Howard Miller J.H. Miller Tubular Chime Grandfather Clock features 16 different hardwoods, including Cherry, Crotch Figured Mahogany, Movingue, Avodire, and Boxwood, (don't ask me what Crotch figured Mahogany might be), ornate polished brass, Roman numeral dial, locking door for added security (?), and 'Free White Glove Shipping & Delivery'. So, I'm sure you won't mind paying the $30,650. Plus, it being 8 feet tall if the budget gets to be too tight you may actually be able to live in it.

I wish I had 3 monkeys: one to do my house chores, one to pay my bills, and the other to dress in tuxedo and be my dinner date.

Nymtoc
04-04-2019, 03:33 AM
Granted. Things go well for the first week, but then conflict breaks out. None of the monkeys wants to pay bills or do chores. They all want to be your dinner date. They begin to fight. Bones are shattered, and blood pools on the floor. The cops come. The monkeys are taken away by the ASPCA, and you are hauled into court on a charge of cruelty to animals. Thanks to a good lawyer, you are sentenced to only 30 days in jail. It could have been worse. :roll:

I wish I could spend a week with the ancient Maya.

Kinsman
04-04-2019, 04:02 AM
Granted. Unfortunately for you it's the same week Coronado has chosen to visit. Now instead of witnessing the height of Mayan culture all the sights before you are mayhem and pillaging. Best find somewhere to hide before the conquistadors decide you might be a local despite your lack of knowledge of language and customs.

I wish all my house plants hadn't died.

ChloeRose
04-05-2019, 04:01 AM
Granted. However, given that you unfortunately do not have a green thumb, you've found yourself having bought an unusual plant named "Audrey II" from a Chinese flower shop during a solar eclipse. It does well other than a need for human blood rather than Miracle Grow to survive. It grows voraciously while you sacrifice your own platelets, but keeping this plant fed is even more challenging and inconvenient than your aforementioned losses. Eventually, after a harrowing escape, you'll be relieved that you aren't that committed to house plants in the first place.

I wish Rembrandt had painted my portrait.

Norman Mjadwesch
04-06-2019, 06:38 AM
Granted. Unfortunately he did the portrait at the tender age of two and you look something more like what Picasso would have done.

I wish I liked cubist art.

Storyteller5
04-07-2019, 09:11 AM
Granted. But now all you want is square things and you've thrown everything round out of your life. You really miss eggs and coffee beans and pizza and beer. Not to mention, it was much easier to get to work when you had a vehicle with wheels. The walk takes a while.

I wish I didn't have to make the grocery list tonight.

ChloeRose
04-08-2019, 03:06 AM
Granted. You will now find that you lack paper or any method in which to make a grocery list. Instead you go to the grocery store hungry and end up buying cookies, chips, cereal with marshmallows, frozen pizza, a rotisserie chicken, garlic bread, and various other impulse buys. The rest of the week you'll end up eating spaghetti and Ramen noodles because you didn't get anything you really needed.

I wish cell phones weren't so expensive and the plans so confusing....

Kinsman
04-08-2019, 07:07 AM
Granted. *takes cell phone (*poof)... gone. Here's two cans and a length of string. At least there'll be no such thing as long-distance charges... (remember those? Before we worried about "roaming" charges?)

I wish I could control the weather...

Norman Mjadwesch
04-08-2019, 08:46 AM
Granted. Unfortunately you only like sunny days and hate rain, so the entire world is in the worst drought it has ever seen and everyone blames you because it's your fault.

I wish I was a flea.

Kinsman
04-09-2019, 07:46 AM
Granted... and welcome to the factories of SC Johnson; the manufacturers of RAID pesticide. I don't anticipate this going well for you.

I wish for honest politicians.

Norman Mjadwesch
04-09-2019, 08:05 AM
Granted. Now all of the things that they say they actually believe. However, there is still no cure for stupid.

I wish that living in the future didn't limit most of my AW live-time interactions with night owls in other countries.

Kinsman
04-09-2019, 08:15 AM
Granted. Time has now stopped. So, now that raises an entirely differe.....

I wish the ozone layer would repair itself, today.

Norman Mjadwesch
04-09-2019, 09:07 AM
Granted. Tomorrow the humans wreck it again.

I wish that respect was a reality more than it is an ideal.

ChloeRose
04-09-2019, 03:31 PM
Granted. You now live in authoritarian North Korea where a show of respect is a reality you won't forget anytime soon.

I wish my 18 year old would stop acting dramatic and arguing with me over something and nothing all the time.

Norman Mjadwesch
04-09-2019, 04:28 PM
Granted. Your child has had a birthday and is now 19 and acting dramatic and arguing with you over something and nothing all of the time.

I wish that acting dramatic over something and nothing all of the time was not such a stark contrast to you sending me to live in authoritarian North Korea where my problems are truly dramatic.

Kinsman
04-09-2019, 05:17 PM
Granted. Society is now lining up to receive compulsory lobotomies.

I wish our school systems had never lowered the standards for passing grades.

ChloeRose
04-09-2019, 06:41 PM
Granted. All schools have been replaced with Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry where highest standards are consistently met.

I wish the computer programs I need to work were actually working so that I could get some work done instead of loosing time on more entertaining, albeit less productive, pastimes.

Norman Mjadwesch
04-09-2019, 06:46 PM
Granted. Now the sole problem is your procrastination, and there is nowhere for you to hide.

I wish that my wishes came true with no strings attached.

Kinsman
04-10-2019, 02:44 AM
Granted. Your wishes will all come true. No strings attached... Unfortunately, Pinocchio was not prepared for this and now you're responsible for the untimely destruction of a childhood icon of millions. Hundreds of thousands of balloons have been released. All rugs and carpets disappear. Hot air balloon and dirigible passengers fall from the sky. Clothing is now a thing of the past and everyone either faces extreme sunburn or frostbite (depending on geographical location). Nudists cheer while general chaos ensues. Congratulations.

I wish I didn't tend to overlook my mistakes...

Azdaphel
04-10-2019, 12:04 PM
Granted. Now you are continuously stressed about making mistakes. You use more time searching for them than actually doing something. You even see mistakes where there is none.

I wish I was perfect.

Kinsman
04-10-2019, 03:42 PM
Granted. "Was" being a term referring to past tense, you were perfect yesterday. Today you are the same person you were before your wish was granted. Hope you enjoyed it.

I wish to be unaffected by age and disease (without becoming a vampire, c'mon people!).

ChloeRose
04-10-2019, 04:39 PM
Granted. And, to prove that Karma does in fact exist, you're unaffected by the ravages of aging and disease...but just for one day. Yesterday. So today by contrast you're feeling that much worse. Back to wrinkles, aches, pains and you better see the doctor about that thing you found.....

I wish someone could redo my kitchen in one day for free.

Kinsman
04-11-2019, 03:23 AM
Granted. It's certainly in the realm-of-the-possible that someone "could" redo your kitchen as specified, but your wish didn't include that someone "would"... Now I could be convinced to handle the first part and even bring chainsaw, wrecking bar and sledgehammer and it could certainly be done in less than a day, unless you insist on counting travel time to Pennsylvania. I can guarantee that your kitchen will look different, but expect that functionality will be 'sub-par'.

I wish I didn't kill every indoor plant I came in contact with.

Norman Mjadwesch
04-11-2019, 03:56 AM
Granted. You are banned from being indoors and now the outdoor plants are dying instead.

I wish that I could think of a wish that people wouldn't be able to solve so easily.

Nymtoc
04-11-2019, 04:03 AM
Granted. You think of a wonderful, complicated, detailed wish that people can't solve easily. You are so proud of yourself that you write the wish down and text it to yourself. But something goes wrong (naturally), and the text is deleted. You can't remember it.

I wish I lived in a banana forest.

ChloeRose
04-11-2019, 04:43 AM
Granted. (you sure about this....like really, really sure??) You now live in a tropical rain forest under a plethora of (herbaceous) banana plants where the average temp. is 80 degrees and annual rainfall of about 9'. You'll need to clear away jungle growth, irrigate during dry season, and pick the bananas at night for poverty wages. So, good luck with that.

I wish none of my laptops, computer or cell phones needed to be charged, so I wouldn't have to worry loosing the cords with mayhem following me throughout the course of my day.

(Boring I know, but true...)

Norman Mjadwesch
04-11-2019, 05:43 AM
Granted. You have been transported back in time and no such technology is needed. The only thing that gets charged now is you... by angry mammoths and woolly rhinos. Although, mayhem still follows you through the day, in the form of big cats with long teeth. (which also sorts out your 'boring' comment)

I wish my dumb car would stop overheating.

Kinsman
04-11-2019, 03:12 PM
Granted. Retrofitting your dumb car with state-of-the-art technology has now made it "smart". However, it still overheats but now it criticizes you for your continued neglect.


I wish I could temporarily suspend gravity at will.

ChloeRose
04-11-2019, 10:02 PM
Granted. You may suspend gravity at will, but only once. Gravity is the glue binding this whole mess together and without it we'd be flung to the nether regions of the universe pretty quick. Thanks for that.

I wish that could talk to the Alexa about all of my problems and she'd help me find the solutions.

Kinsman
04-12-2019, 05:48 AM
Granted. The problem is that now Alexa identifies as a male and insists on being called "Alex". While Alex is more than willing to assist you with solutions, "his" lack of female perspective now makes those solutions unsatisfactory to you.

I wish my knees didn't hurt.

Norman Mjadwesch
04-12-2019, 09:38 AM
Granted. You have been punched in the head and now you aren't thinking about your knees at all.

I wish that my car hadn't head my previous wish and took objection by refusing to start this morning. FML.

Kinsman
04-12-2019, 04:53 PM
Granted. The "Smart" functions have been removed from your car. It can no longer process information. It also still will not start. Now, put some gas in your car...

I wish I had super-strength.

PorterStarrByrd
04-12-2019, 06:14 PM
Granted : Aything you touch wil explode under the pressure. I'd suggest avoiding contact with everything that doesn't need to be destroyed

I wish I had a box of Cheerios

ChloeRose
04-12-2019, 08:15 PM
Granted. My Granpa liked to collect food on the expired shelf having grown up during the Great Depression. After he passed we found a freezer full of really old hot dogs and buns....and I'm pretty sure a a few boxes of Cheerios. They're all yours..postage included. (We'll throw in some hot dogs and buns as a bonus).

I wish that I were coordinated and patient enough to play golf.

Kinsman
04-13-2019, 05:08 AM
Granted. However, in the interests of expansion for our ever-growing population, all golf courses have been bulldozed to make room for apartment complexes and shopping malls. Perhaps there are still a few miniature (putt-putt) golf courses in existence. If I happen across any, I'll let you know.

I wish all my carpentry projects went together on site with no additional adjustments necessary.

Azdaphel
04-13-2019, 03:54 PM
Granted! Wood no longer exist in the world, so you no longer have to worry about carpentry projects.

I wish for days to be never to hot or to cold. Just the perfect temperature for me.

Kinsman
04-13-2019, 04:59 PM
Granted. Now that there are few fluctuations in the weather, plants stop getting the seasonal messages they require as a signal for when to drop seeds. They cease to flower, causing pollinators to starve and die in massive numbers, with predictable results. Thanks for bringing us worldwide famine. Hope you're comfortable though.

I wish for a cure for cancer to be discovered and made economically available to the population.

PorterStarrByrd
04-14-2019, 02:32 AM
Denied ... it is already affordable to the populations of many upscale communities.

I wish I was more charitable

ChloeRose
04-14-2019, 10:53 PM
Granted. You have now become the most charitable person imaginable. So much so that you've given away all of your possessions and financial security to those less fortunate. While it brings a great deal of satisfaction to extend such love and generosity to those who truly need it, when you're walking around in your britches because you literally 'gave the shirt off your back' you're wondering if perhaps everything in moderation might have made a bit more sense. Burrrrr....

I wish that not every nature I watch ends up with a dire warning that the planet is being destroyed and every creature they just showed will soon be extinct.

PorterStarrByrd
04-15-2019, 12:29 AM
Granted You have been transported to the Serengetti where it is not the animals around you who will soon be extinct.

I wish I has a square meal now that I have nothing else.

Kinsman
04-16-2019, 02:48 PM
Granted. Assuming your typo "has" was intended to be a "was", you are now a square meal for a rapidly approaching grizzly bear. If this assumption was made in error, I can only offer this advice.... Run.


I wish there weren't stigmas associated with most stereotypes.

Azdaphel
04-17-2019, 01:08 PM
Granted! Now all stereotypes become a norm and conforming to one or more is mandatory. Originallity is seen as a mental illness. But don't worry, there is a huge amount of stereotypes to chose from.

I wish fashion no longer exist.

ChloeRose
04-18-2019, 11:58 PM
Granted. Now that fashion no longer exists creative expression in the form of clothing has gone...*poof*...and everyone looks exactly the same. Practicality dictates that brown potato sacks are worn by all persons in addition to black shoes. It's a rather drab world of conformity filled with confused teenage girls and unemployed designers.

I wish I could have lunch with Eleanor Roosevelt.

Kinsman
04-19-2019, 05:44 AM
Granted. It took most of the day, but I've located a drag queen impersonator who answers to "Eleanor Roosevelt". (S)he is waiting outside your house and is expecting you to cover travel expenses. Enjoy your lunch.


I wish I had a time travel machine.

ChloeRose
04-20-2019, 08:51 PM
Granted. You now have a time travel machine, unfortunately it came from the "Used/Preowned" section and has a fluky control panel. The faulty wiring seems stuck on 'historic plagues' which isn't ideal. But, if you're a history buff who wants to familiarize yourself on the prime-time bubonic, septicemic or pneumonic high-lights jump right in. Next time I'd suggest buying "New".

I wish I had a tree house.

Kinsman
04-21-2019, 02:52 PM
Granted. The Keebler Elves have now been tossed out on their pointy ears and their house is yours (and they took their cookies with them). You now are the proud owner of a tree house but the resulting mob of elf-loving cookie eaters have decided this is the final straw. :mob ... I'd suggest barring your doors and windows.

I wish for economical, effective and plentiful antibiotics now that ChloeRose's time machine has sent me on a tour of the worst plagues in the history of our world... (I was only trying to arrange her lunch date with Eleanor Roosevelt) - apparently no good deed goes unpunished.

Azdaphel
04-23-2019, 12:07 AM
Granted! But recent research have been so focused on fighting new resistant bacteria, viruses have been ignored for years. New strains have appeared and they are decimating the human race. On the plus side, a working and precise time machine is ready for ChloeRose to go have a lunch with Eleanor Roosevelt (the real one). Maybe she will bring you with her however, this wish is not in my power to grant.

I wish for Desty Nova to be real and use Kinsman for his experiences.

Kinsman
04-23-2019, 05:27 PM
Granted. However, Desty Nova pales before the might and sheer ferocity of The Kinsman, and he now fetches my morning newspaper.


I wish someone would patch the holes in my driveway.

ChloeRose
04-24-2019, 04:23 AM
Granted. Unfortunately you didn't say what you wanted your driveway patched with. All we have on hand is miracle grow and superglue which mixed altogether should make for a good substitute. Even if it's not a totally stable surface you'll have some lovely flowers growing out of your driveway.

I wish I could fluently speak and write French, Spanish, German and Italian.

Nymtoc
04-24-2019, 05:00 AM
Granted. You can speak and write French, Spanish, German and Italian, all fluently. Of course, you can do this only on the night following Jelly Bean Day (April 22nd), if there happens to be a full moon.

I wish I were a Knight of the Round Table.

PorterStarrByrd
04-24-2019, 05:10 AM
Granted

You are now featured on the chess board of table three at Starbucks in Lima, Ohio

I which I could find my zipper collection

Kinsman
04-24-2019, 05:50 AM
Granted. :e2zipped: Now that's settled, you get to wear the zipper and allow the smiley to get back to what he does best.


I wish so many of my nails didn't have the heads on the wrong end.

PorterStarrByrd
04-24-2019, 05:46 PM
Denied ... but here is a hammer with a head on each end

I wish my gold fish would quit laying on his back not moving

Kinsman
04-25-2019, 06:03 AM
Granted. Now he's laying in your bed. On his side. Still not moving.


I wish someone (some fluency in Moose may be required) would clarify for PSB that the thread is titled, "Your wish is granted..."

Azdaphel
04-25-2019, 10:59 AM
Denied! Only a moderator has the power to grant such a wish. However, I can still grant the wish denied by our preferred Moose. In fact, nails no longer exist. Even the word no longer exist in the dictionary.......oops, I think I made a great mistake granting that wish.

I wish for someone to undo what I have done.

ChloeRose
04-25-2019, 04:43 PM
Granted. However to bring "Nails" back into existence there has to be a huge roll-out introduction covered in all medias. So for weeks now expect to hear about the great new discovery "Nails! And all of their handy features. The new wonder invention that holds material together!" You'll be wishing the news were all about politics again - not.

I wish that Poison Ivy didn't exist.

PorterStarrByrd
04-25-2019, 05:37 PM
denied. We don't mess with Mother nature's little tricks. Just think what might happen if you got her mad.

I wish I knew what just happened to my goldfish

ChloeRose
04-25-2019, 07:34 PM
Denied. Yee denier of wishes shall hereto forth be doomed to a future full of pondering as to what may or may not have happened to thy (beloved?) pet/fish. It is an unfortunate twist of fate, however the Karma of Wish Denying has been brought down upon you with at full force with a mighty hammer in the hopes of your reforming your stingy wish-giving ways...or at least get used not having any of your wishes granted on the "YOUR WISH IS GRANTED" storyline.

I wish that someone who liked granting wishes would grant my wish of getting rid of poison ivy.

Nymtoc
04-25-2019, 09:28 PM
Granted. You are rid of poison ivy now and forever! Unfortunately, you will soon be plagued by killer bees.

I wish I had a magic computer that would turn out masterpieces at the click of a couple of keys.

Kinsman
04-25-2019, 09:55 PM
Granted. However, your computer believes it belongs to someone else, so both credit and royalties for said masterpieces will be attributed to someone else.


I wish for women to be free of the curse of PMS (and thereby free all men from it's side-effects).
