Did your wish to the wishing well ever come true?

Asked by RealEyesRealizeRealLies (30877points) February 23rd, 2010

Mine did, but I’m not so confident that the wishing well had anything whatsoever to do with it. I knew that before I even tossed the penny. So if I knew it didn’t have any power over the universe, then why did I waste the penny?

none of my wishes ever have. Kinda makes you wonder why I keep wishing, huh?

I wished for my penny back. It didn’t happen.
I’m currently organizing a class action lawsuit against this particular wishing well.

I don’t know if they still have it, but Casa Bonita in Colorado used to have a cool wishing well. I haven’t been there since I was a really young kid but I remember a ghostly green face appearing at the bottom of it.

I wish SpongeBob was inside all the wishing wells I’ve been to =/

You still had faith when you know you didn’t need it, it’s hard for people to let go when they’ve been taught things from childhood.

Wishing wells wouldn’t exist as such if all it took to grant you whatever you wanted was a penny.

Point in case, individual pennies are pretty worthless most times, so they’re easy to waste or abandon. I gather mine though, made like thirty bucks in two years, which is more than any well has ever given me.

I agree with @Symbeline perhaps it was only coincident that your wish came true.

Yes. I did go to Six Flags on my 12th birthday.

I whispered, ‘I am too young,’
And then, ‘I am old enough’;
Wherefore I threw a penny
To find out if I might love.
‘Go and love, go and love, young man,
If the lady be young and fair.’
Ah, penny, brown penny, brown penny,
I am looped in the loops of her hair.

O love is the crooked thing,
There is nobody wise enough
To find out all that is in it,
For he would be thinking of love
Till the stars had run away
And the shadows eaten the moon.
Ah, penny, brown penny, brown penny,
One cannot begin it too soon.
