What would life be like if everyone had those special three wishes, and they could use them whenever they wanted. It would either be peaceful or chaotic. Harmonious or incongruous. What would you use your wishes for? Oh, and remember there’s only three. Think really hard… Maybe you would wish for all the candy in the world, or perhaps (if you’re more mature) you would wish for help or money towards a good cause.

Some less productive people spend a whole wish on this;  “I wish for some more wishes.” But…. you can’t do that. It’s an invalid wish. If you happened to do that, you would be wasting a whole wish. Not half of one, a WHOLE wish, and all just for wishful thinking!

I am not sure which fiction category this would fit under, so please just enjoy!
