Do you have a grown up Christmas list like Barbra Streisand?

Asked by Hawaii_Jake (25799 points ) December 12th, 2010

Her song makes me wish for so many things: clean water and ample food for all, true friendship, and so much more.

As an adult, what do you wish for?

A car, to be rich, to be discovered by Hollywood agents, the most awesome tech gadgets, a round the world trip.

But world peace, love for everyone and a bright future will also do.

Just the same sappy stuff, health and well-being for all.

Totally unrelated, but your question made me think of this song

That my children will lead successful and happy lives.
That when my time comes, I will die well, and that it happens before my girlfriend’s time comes.

Right now, I am wishing to get rid of some negative, obsessive thoughts that are messing with my mind. And – the repeal of DADT, approval of gay marriage, the end of the tax cuts for the wealthy, more jobs….......

My list looks more like something John Rambo would write. :P

Of course, most of the things on there are means by which to get clean water and ample food.

Health.

Does Barbra Streisand have Christmas?

@JLeslie : I don’t know, but she has my 2 favorite Christmas albums.

Enough to eat, shelter, clean air and water, access to health care, education and love. For everyone. I kind of think if all that were taken care of, peace would take care of itself.

I gave you a GQ simply for mentioning Barbra Streisand in your question!

My only real wish is to be happy and for those I love to be happy and healthy. @josie I also wish that my time will come before my partner’s.

@JLeslie I think Babs does “celebrate” Christmas from what she has mentioned in interviews etc, although, to what extent, I’m not sure.
