Ever had a wish come true? I haven't. But it still seems worth it to stay positive. I'm putting my wishes out there with the hope that they might come true.
I wish Michael Phelps was a little more likable or had some kind of back story that made him endearing. He sure is a good swimmer though.
I wish I hadn't gone through a phase during college of trying to identify with my southern father by saying "ya'll." That was embarrassing!
I wish they hadn't torn down my old school, Grandview. I wish I could have spent more time walking the halls with my kids on the day they tore it down before I immediately and respectfully began looting.
I wish I had a signature move like Peter Gabriel riding his bike onstage. As he demonstrates, it doesn't have to be cool--just something people can look forward to.
I wish I could have respect for people younger than me. I really wish I could. I don't know what I'll do when I'm older than the president. That must feel awful.
I wish "Gina" from Sesame Street could make a living at it and didn't have to resort to doing allergy medicine commercials for extra money. I love her work as Gina.
I wish home makeover shows wouldn't throw away perfectly good counters.
I wish I was a little bit taller. I wish I was a baller. I wish I had a girl who looked good--I would call her.
As you may know, I wish my hamster were dead.
I wish I made up X-Files.
I wish Canadians weren't so passive aggressive.
I wish I were friends with and regularly went out to lunch with Ira Glass, Michael Stipe, Robert Plant, and Jack Black. Wouldn't that be fun? Robert Plant would always pay and we'd roll our eyes at each other when Michael Stipe ordered something vegetarian. After a few lunches I wouldn't be star-struck anymore and we could really talk. Can you imagine the awesome conversations? "You should blog about that, Kacy!" they would say. "Come on, guys--no one wants to read about the boring stuff we talk about at lunch. So how much did the devil pay you for your soul, Bob?" I would reply.
I wish Clorox had a line of hair color. They should.
I wish I knew if Angelina Jolie was for real. Does she like kids that much?
And finally, I wish cows had paws instead of hooves.
