Star Light, star bright, first star I see tonight, I wish I may, I wish I might...

Asked by msh (4270points) October 18th, 2015 from iPhone

… have the wish, I wish tonight…
When was the last time you made a wish on something?

(Lottery tickets, scratch off’s, or gambling -don’t count.)

Do you ever wish on a star?
Do you wish on the moon?
Do you throw coins in a fountain and make a wish?
When you put the clasp that has worked it’s way down to your necklace charm in front- turn it back around to the back, making a wish as you do so?
Do you make a wish along with a little cross-fingered ritual when you see a white horse?
Do you lick your thumd-pad and put it to the ceiling of your car when you go under a train tressel with a moving train on the tracks- and then make a wish before putting your arm back down again?
Do you cross your fingers- not behind your back in a lie- but cross them in front to bring good luck?

Or have you ceased to make wishes now that your body has gotten older?

I make a wish every time I see a shooting star or when I drive through a tunnel and hold my breath until I’m out of the other side. I don’t care if I don’t believe it’ll work anymore the way I did when I was a kid, it’s still a tradition I’m happy to keep, just because.

When? Probably a couple of Thanksgivings ago. Wishbone. I won the pull.

I don’t think I’ve ever made a real wish, I guess that’s part of seeing things at face value, I mean what would be the point?

Maybe when I was a ridiculously young and still stupid child, but I can’t recall anything.

I was wishing as late as last night for the Cubs to come back and take the NLCS and advance to the World Series.

No. However, I’ll play along.

Star light star bright, first star I see tonight, I wish I may, I wish I might, get 10 hours of sleep tonight! haha
