Wish Tip of the Day

You know something you're allowed to wish on? Stars? Yes. Birthdays? Yes. Four Leaf clovers? Yes. Eyelashes? Yes. Boggers? No, that's just gross. But one thing you can wish on that a lot of people may not realize is time. Yes, if the time includes a pattern of numbers, such as 11:11, then you can make a wish. That comes in especially handy around here since lots of posts here are tagged with times that have repeating numbers. However, we're not entirely sure that counts, it might have to be what the clock say.

What would everyone wish for today if it was 11:11 all day? I wish my voice wasn't manly today. I sound seriously scary.

I would wish for another week before Christmas, so things wouldn't seem rushed & hurried.

I second that one. By a show of hands who hasn't done any of their Christmas shopping yet?

I've got enough of it done, and I made quite a few of my gifts (miraculously, I had time for that!). This year I have the lovely excuse, "I just bought a house," so my family...well, my Mom & Dad at least...says they don't want me to buy them anything. Of course I'm getting them each something little anyway. :-)

I'm almost done shopping and I wanted to add that Jay says you are supposed to make a wish if there is a hair in your food.

Ah yes, Becca. This is true. And actually, I think your brother was the first to coin this as a valid wishing item. We decided that finding a hair in your food and being grossed out by it is completely societal. Hair is no more dirty that anything else, yet we've been conditioned to think so. So, Pete and I decided that if you tell your kids that finding a hair means you can make a wish, they just might not be grossed out by it!
