Questions Round 2

Wow, I like this whole question/answer thing. Allows me to post without coming up with a plan! This helps when the creative juices just ain't flowin'. Thanks for playing along guys!

OK, question number two. My sista from another mista, Teri, has asked me the following:

If you had three wishes, what would they be? If you could do anything you want, no penalties, no reprisals, and the cost is unimportant, what are you going to do?

Wow, no really. Don't hit me with a tough one or anything. Don't give me a question that could either give me the Mrs. America crown or make me look like a shallow dumb-ass. Seriously. Not at all. Your birthday? Next month? You're gettin' jack, darlin'. Love, Me.

My three wishes. OK. Here goes.

Wish #1: The first wish would be to go back to January 28, 1998, to the phone call my father made the day before his heart catherization, two days before his death, the last time I ever spoke to him. He was expressing his fears regarding the procedure and I completely brushed him off. I would like to go back to that last conversation and change it. I would like to be supportive and loving and to make him laugh.

Wish #2: I would wish away my mother's restless leg syndrome. This is an affliction that really bothers her and makes day-to-day life a bit more difficult for her. I would definitely get rid of that.

Wish #3: I would wish guaranteed happy lives for my children. If nothing else, I want to make sure they grow up happy, no matter what they do.

Your other question was regarding why you keep waking up at 6:30AM every morning. Because you're special, sweetie. Very special! :-)

And there you have it. Where's my damned crown?

Keep 'em comin'! If you didn't get to ask a question, just go back to this Sunday's post and leave a comment with your question there. I'll be happy to answer!

One of your wishes is supposed to be for infinite wishes!

Ty-man said...

Avitable, obviously you haven't read, seen Aladdin enough. The Genie specifically states that you can't wish for more wishes.

Avitable said...

That is a good point.

Gypsy said...

You forgot world peace. How can you be Mrs. America without world peace?

Turnbaby said...

Yes but it wasn't limited that way--I love your wishes.

Coal Miner's Granddaughter said...

Avitable - Yeah, but then I would just take all those infinite wishes and screw something up. Seriously.

Sweetie - OK, step away from Mr. Disney. I guess we need to start watching something else, eh?

Avitable - Told you! *Snap!*

Gypsy - True. True.

Turnbaby - Thanks, hon!

Here is my question: Did you know on Tr*vel*city today they posted RT flights from ATL to DC for $165? And what are you going to do about it? :)

Teri said...

You skipped "If you could do anything you want, no penalties, no reprisals, and the cost is unimportant, what are you going to do?"

How about this one...why are the only good men on this planet married to my friends? Can you answer that one for me?

Coal Miner's Granddaughter said...

NATUI - Nothin'. 'Cause I got Skymiles, girlfriend! :-)

Teri - Whoops! How 'bout "Buy a dive resort in Bonaire and live out my days with daquaris, sun, and sand!
