If you can make it happen, what ridiculous wish would you wish for right now?

Asked by Pandora (29225points) August 19th, 2015

I’m not looking for cure world cancer, or global peace or become the world riches person. This has to be something that people often think about but usually doesn’t hit the top 10.

For instance. I just finished cutting my grass and blowing it and trimming my plants and watering my lawn. I think a bug put up a dinner sign that read, delicious Puerto Rican food come eat all for free. My legs and arms look like target practice.
So I was so pissed when I came in.
I found myself wishing to find a way to kill all blood sucking insects and a way to supplement the wild life that eats them. I also wished them all a slow an painful death.

I know this is dreaming big, but I wish someone would make dinner tonight for me and the kids.

To always have enough food so that I don’t have to sleep off poverty until I get paid again.

majorrich's avatar

I kind of wish I remember all that I forgot.

longgone's avatar

I wish I could look forward to my piano lesson tomorrow, instead of fretting about not having practised nearly enough.

Pandora's avatar

@majorrich Even the bad stuff that really pissed you off?
@talljasperman :( I’ll wish that one with you.
@DoNotKnow Been there. But you can order pizza or something.
@longgone, Oh that dam procrastination will get you every time.

@Pandora
That’s funny: As a kid, I often wished that there was an invisible barrier around me that insects and creepy crawlies could not penetrate lest they turn into ash. That way I’m only destroying the ecology immediately around me instead of the whole world.

Right now? I just wish I had some more chips.

I want people to stop discriminating against teens. Not everybody does it but I wish the ones that do would realize not all teens spike their hair and teach little kids things they should not know.

longgone's avatar

^ Yep, great answer.

Pandora's avatar

@Apparently_Im_The_Grumpy_One LOL, that is an excellent wish. Your kid thinking was quite advance. I’m just too pissed off right now. Kind of want them all dead. But a shield would do.

longgone's avatar

@Pandora….and I had six weeks to get started. Ungh.

Coloma's avatar

I wish I had the powers of Bewitched and could twitch my nose to turn people I don’t like into frogs, to disappear, to have my work/chores all completed and anything else I desired.
twitch…I am fully dressed, perfect makeup and sitting in my new car. lol

I wish for a bachelor’s degree! The financial aid office at my local community college is a Kafka-esque nightmare. I asked if they have any resources for adult students in the workforce and they said “the whole thing” is for students like me. How amazingly helpful.

Pandora's avatar

@Coloma I remember wishing I could be like Samantha on Bewitch. First I would zap all mosquitos away from me and any near me attempting to bite me will die a slow and miserable death.
Yep still pissed at them.

Coloma's avatar

@Pandora,...yes I had some evil mosquito attack me during the night about a week ago and the bite on the back of my shoulder has been awful all week. Not infected but just huge and sore and icky. It is also West Nile time out west here, one case reported in the neighboring county.

I wish I finished my book now.

Blackberry's avatar

A pound of LSD and shrooms.

DoNotKnow's avatar

Update. Nobody made us dinner. I realized that I had bought ground beef last night, however. So I fired up the grill and had burgers and salad. Now comes the post-meat guilt. I just need to start eating less meat. Can I change my wish to “I wish someone would make a vegetarian dinner for me and the kids tonight”?

jca's avatar

To not have to work any more, and have enough money to live out the rest of my life and send my daughter to college when the time comes. Just to be able to stay home, volunteer, enjoy myself without having to work full time.

I’d wish for Ed Mcmahon to show up on my doorstep with the keys to a Ferrari or a Lamborghini with a recoiless rifle mounted on the roof. Crappy drivers beware.
@Mimishu1995 You write in such detail that’s not going to happen for a while. But you have the talent. Keep at it.

I’d like a magic quill that could take the ideas and words from my brain and transfer them beautifully into papers for me. My words always seem so much better when I’m saying them in my head than they do when I transfer them to paper.

Other than that, I wish there was no homelessness. I wish everyone (who wants it) had a roof over their head and food to eat.

Berserker's avatar

I wish everything was made out of pillows.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Symbeline Laughs, I knew that was coming.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Earthbound_Misfit I’d tell you my wish but you know how bad I can be and you’d slap me before I finished.

Berserker's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe Nay thou didst naught! I like pillows.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

You love pillows. Let’s call a spade a spade.

Here2_4's avatar

I wish there was no pain or cause for pain, worldwide.

Buttonstc's avatar

I’d just like a new pair of knees with cartilage that lasts indefinitely. Oh, and a brand new set of natural teeth (not dentures) permanently immune to cavities. That’s all for me and I’d be quite content.

cazzie's avatar

I wish my shoulder neck back and hip problem would go away and that I could move me and my little guy back to the land I love.

Buttonstc's avatar

Wow. That’s a really fascinating read. Now all I have to wish for is the money to pay for it :) and judging from the prices of current implants, these would likely be double, triple or more the cost…

…but interesting nonetheless.

sahID's avatar

@Buttonstc I hear you about the teeth (I could use a set myself.)

I wish I could have a healthy, scoleosis-free spine and two new, completely healthy legs (from the hip down) that are wear resistant and immune to fatigue.

Pandora's avatar

@Here2_4 I’ll be first in line for the experimental procedure. I want some molars back.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

I’d rather have me knees back They’ve been trash for a long, long time

Here2_4's avatar

I’m not so sure the cost would be great. It involves stem cells, and growing your own teeth. There would be much less involvement with such things as cutting, stitches, and digging into bone. I believe the patient can supply their own stem cells, so storage costs could be nil. It might be better without being costlier. Le’s wait a bit, and see.

jca's avatar

@Here2_4: I had dental implants (not sure if you have had them) and I can assure you it’s a great surgery and great recovery. Almost painless recovery. I always highly recommend dental implants as a way to replace teeth. It’s not cheap but it’s very worth it, in my opinion. You can eat what you want, they look just like regular teeth, they act just like regular teeth, they don’t rot.

Here2_4's avatar

When I said great, I meant large.
No, I have not had implants. It seems I’m not the only one unfamiliar with either the price or procedure. Please, @jca , won’t you enlighten us?

Coloma's avatar

Not everyone can get implants. I looked into it some years ago for a particular molar and turns out my jawbone was too thin to take an implant. haha

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Coloma You’re shitting me. You’re jawbone was too thin? With your mouth.~

Coloma's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe Haha…believe it or not!
It was for this one molar that I was either going to crown or pull and my dentist actually offered to try an implant for free to see if it would take, but I declined being a Guinea Pig. I went for the crown. I;m not into being an experiment unless there is some good drugs involved. lol

Pandora's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe There is bone that surrounds the root of your teeth and keeps it in place. When you have been missing a tooth for two long or if you have osteoporosis you will have bone loss and the gum line starts to recede and the bone becomes too narrow to support a tooth.With no tooth to hold the space it will shrivel up. Not completely but it will become too narrow.
Another problem is if the teeth on top is still there, they may start to shift downward not giving enough room on the bottom for a tooth to be replaced.

Coloma's avatar

@Pandora In my case it was none of those, this was in my early thirties, way back when now. I just have a thin jaw bone apparently.

jca's avatar

Also, the bone has a better chance of forming if you don’t smoke and I would guess, certain diseases of the bone would inhibit bone growth, too.

@Here2_4: What do you want to know? If you google dental implants you will find much info. It involves a few surgeries, a few thousand dollars, but to me, it’s worth it because it’s just like having your own teeth. Now if one does not like surgery or does not have a few thousand dollars to spare, or has some bone issue (as @Coloma recounted above), then it’s not for you.
