    I was talking with co-workers the other day and some how the topic of conversation got on "wishes".

    I asked several of them if they had 3 wishes, what would they wish for. The range of answers that I got were interesting to say the least.

    I thought I might ask the question in here to see what kind of answers I would get.

    So here it is. IF YOU HAD 3 WISHES, WHAT WOULD THEY BE?

    My Wishes
    1. Everything free for everybody--
    (Got alot of negative reactions for that one. Still dont understand why though)

    2. To speak and understand every language

    3. More wishes.

    02. Being able to fly at will (although invisibility would be cool)
    03. Unlimited Credit

    Hi,

    Feel free!

    I would just like to point out that I did not mean it as a joke.

    Of course, in expressing this wish I should also be including the wish itself which makes it a bit, well, complex!

    Thats good, honesty and "KEEPING IT REAL" is whats its about.
    after a while though "me me me" can become hell. Also living forever might become a bit hellish too.
    :rolleyes:

    As the old saying gose
    be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it.
    ;)

    So, 17th, would everyone automatically be demoted to your level or below? In regards to your 3rd, I mean. Or would you magically be given more? Honesty is good, I don't presume to judge, but in such self-admittedly selfish wishes, how could you expect to fate, chance, or the world - however you may call it - to treat you favorably?
