I wish I had a harem

Granted, but they all have unimaginable std's.

I wish I ruled the world.

Done.

But the women will be men in disguise.

(of course there is nothing wrong with that though;-))


I wish the City of Chicago would widened the sidewalks along Clark Street.

Poof!

The sidewalks are widened but are now access controled by coin operated turnstyle entrances.

I wish I could find a cute, long term, girlfriend! :)

Done! But unfortunately, she never shuts up about her favourite topic: breeding toy poodles. Lucky for you, she brings all five of them wherever she goes (including your place).

My wish: That Elmo's car would magically start working again.

Zang, you get a cute-long term girlfriend but it turns out she lied about her age and is really 15, so you end up in prison where Bubba makes you his bitch.
I wish I had $1 for everytime somebody asked me for change you winos (sorry winos).

Done, but the weight of carying around a bushel basket of dollar bills leads to horrible and disfiguring back pains that keep you bed ridden and unable to reach your beer tap.

Done, they're in your basement.....but since global warming has warmed the planet 20 degrees more, there is no longer snow south of the 80th parallel.


I wish I could get some work done today! (damn Cyburbia;-))

BLAMMO, your employer broadens its drink in the workplace policy to allow Jameson's, and even installs a tap right on your desk. The tap, however, only dispenses ginger ale.

I wish I could find an investment scheme that would turn $20 into $5,000,000 in a month.

Oopsie, guess I was too slow. KAZAM!! Your Nikes are now guaranteed to never wear out, but you must never take them off in order for the spell to work.

NOW, I wish for the aforementioned investment scheme (see above).

Granted, but it's recently found to be a historical site and you are not allowed to build.

I wish I had 20k delivered to my house tonight.

Done! Upon arriving at your property you find that every sewage treatment plant around the lake has failed dumping hundreds of tons of untreated waste on your beach.
...Then it pulls a Lake Erie and catches fire.

I wish I had superpowers.

Slightly OT - did you go to that brownfields conference in Portland last week?

~~POOF~~ Your new snowmobile only works in 90+degree weather.

I wish for an easier daily commute.

Granted. Your office is now in the building next door, and the boss now expects you to work more hours since you have no commute. Best to leave town on days off - they know where you live!

I wish I were a fish.

Poof! Done! And now they're all in your office, waving copies of Planning and Dwell and demanding that sidewalks be installed, SRO's be built, and land be given to Parks. And they won't leave until that's all done, and a wind farm installed, and a living machine.......

Poof, Done,

But your insurance provider is now the US government and the waiting list to see a doctor for a yeast infection is now 4 months long.
